Has anybody tried to put together a PCT version of a hearing test?
I don't know what the standard procedure is, but my daughter told
me that in yesterday in kindergarten, they tested her hearing by
having her say when she heard a sound wearing earphones.

_Feasible in the relatively short term_
I can imagine a software package that uses PCT to test
various perceptual capabilities of people and gives them a nice
display and report of results. They could test themselves over
time and look at changes.
_Desirable in the relatively long term_
With subsequent releases of the imagined product, more
kinds of perceptual control could be added, with the long-term goal
of providing people with a self-testing/modeling system to use over
a life-time. If the users group of the product submitted data
to be analyzed to PCT software company, they could provide nice
way to fix/update/improve the product. At the highest levels,
the system could be a tool for examining goals and sources of error
from conflicting same-order and trans-order perceptions of self,
values, relationships to with other people, and so forth.
Make it easy for each individual to apply PCT to his/her own
personal life. Use the power of personal computers. (No need
to go "beyond tracking!")
Institutionalize PCT-based practices in academia, business,
education, etc. Use the power of social structures.
