The main idea of science is to create a hypothesis upon an issue or matter, then use a series of different experiments and studies to counter your hypothesis. Hypotheses are generally taken from other hypotheses from scientists of the past and then worked on, to be challenged again, leading to a more and more accurate hypothesis each time.

There are different types of hypothesis, depending on their place in the hypothesis process. These are:

• Scientific hypothesis: Refers to a hypothesis that is seen as a trial solution to a question in science. Sometimes it is even referred to as an "educated guess", which is then trialed and tested, to see if it can be disproven. It may take several of these types of hypotheses before a scientist actually gets anywhere with their research. This is because many hypotheses are easily disproven or perhaps others aren't specific enough about the topic.
• Working hypothesis: Refers to a hypothesis that is still being tested and worked upon by scientists. It has yet to be disproven or falsified and becomes therefore, a basis for more research in the future. The hypothesis, like all hypotheses, is based on a mix of expectations that have been constructed into several statements.

A good, useful hypothesis poses questions for scientists to delve deeper into the area they are studying. By announcing a hypothesis, other scientists can help create a more specialized and accurate hypothesis that can become a working hypothesis. It has been said that a hypothesis has to be falsifiable, not scientific as they aren't always accurate and the main point of a hypothesis is to challenge it and then garner more information from that discovery.

In creating a hypothesis you have got to be unaware of the real answer behind the question you are posing or it at least still has to be under investigation. If the answer to the hypothesis and the matter it discusses is already relatively simple, it will be seen as a "consequence" and not a real hypothesis.
