You are on crack. I guess that makes your parents unfit.

That's a silly definition, it just punts the problem downstream. By any reasoned process nobody without precong would be fit. 'Capable of maximizing the minimum?' Maximizing: really? Optimum or unfit?

More thought required!

Also Drakon charts.

I actually was taught DRAKON charts (a variation of it) in high school back in '96. It tremendously helped me in more ways than strictly programming (which I never embraced). My teacher used to call it pseudocode back then, although Pseudocode is different.
At the time, generating a high level overview of the processes in DRAKON before building any code was mandatory, and it sped up code generation because you always knew what the next steps would be.

Examine your belief that it is possible to do good science in sociology and how long it takes to match reality.

How would you squeeze the perception bias out of that? Then again, so long as you select beliefs to revise carefully, you should get tenure. Just don't even consider trying to revise the beliefs of the department chair.
