Less well known is the fact that while the social sciences have wholeheartedly accepted Kuhn's view of the way science works, natural science has proven much more resistant to it. This occurred despite Kuhn's intention to address only natural science, and to explicitly avoid addressing the social sciences. [i]t is quite the opposite in the social and psychological sciences. Kuhn's Structure had hardly appeared in print when presidential addresses to annual meetings of the American Psychological Association and American Sociological Association avowed their need for paradigms.

For example, One Day at a Time was a popular television program at the time. The character of Ann, on the program, was portrayed as an iron-willed, women's liberation type, and this perception was attributed to the name Ann by some subjects in the study.
