Judging Success

I wonder if it’s possible to measure a person’s judgment.

I suspect not.

We might be able to keep score: based on judgment, how many times has one gotten the expected results?

But is keeping score the same thing as making measurements?

For example, what would happen if instead of arguing over whether or not an amplifier with measured THD levels of 0.1% sounds different than one with 0.01%, we instead kept score? Take a collection of 10 reference audio tracks and score our like/dislike through both amplifiers.

Could we then say the one with consistently high scores measures better?

Or are there things like emotions, judgment, hearing, and perception that cannot be measured?
