Two questions about randomness of data-sequences:

  1. Using a variant of run test like Wald–Wolfowitz to check randomness hypothesis for a one-sample data sequence, which yields a P value denoting the probability of randomness, can we conclude the degree of randomness by looking at the resultant P value. That is; can we say the higher the P value the more random is the sequence, and the smaller the P value the more non-random is the sequence?

  2. If this concept is true; the next question is: In terms of P values, how random are sequences generated by a typical human mind?
