in physical sciences, it can't be so easily and successfully used in social sciences. The main reason of this distinction is that whereas the subject
matter of Physical sciences is generally material and gross, the subject matter of social sciences is conscious and subtle. Hence scientific method
can't be so rigidly used in different social sciences like psychology. But the psychologists are continuously trying their best to make it more scientific
like physical sciences so they can explain every phenomenon through cause effect relationship. The validity, objectivity and reliability of the proper
psychological experiments can give them the same status of physical sciences.
