Description This article reports a study that analyzed the role of statistics in the scientific production of Ecuadorian psychology based on a mixed methodology study.  The sample included 410 participants (students and professionals of different cities of Ecuador).  The findings on the quantitative phase included that liking and mastering statistical processes increase the probability of publishing a scientific article.  Moreover, when negative belief variables and anxiety related to statistics have a higher score, the mastery of statistical processes and its use for the job of the psychologist decrease.  On the qualitative phase, a significance emerged that allowed to better understand quantitative data, and to develop categories on statistics erroneous’ believes, procedures, a negative predisposition towards learning statistics and others.  The paper concludes by analyzing the scientific reality of Ecuadorian psychology and the need to carry out longitudinal research where it will be possible to restructure subjective constructions on the role of statistics in psychology.
