Without beating around the bush here are some specific X and Y factors
that I measure. I don't call them that but that is exactly what they are.

1 [Motivational behaviour] [Motivational Model (values)- Algedonic signal]
2 [Time of Intention] [Motivational Model (values)- Algedonic Signal]
3 [Time, Age] [Cognition]
4 [Skills] [Knowledge]
5 [Time (clock)] [Time of Intention]
6 [Targets: cost, quantity, time] [All the above variables]

You cannot divide the right hand side Y factor (parenthesis) is the
invariant. The left hand side (parenthesis) is the X factor which can be

I have just realised that using the Kruskal Wallis non parametric test for
the no 1 grouping one can calculate the motivational entropy of a firm.
