The role and influence of the interviewer

Date of publication: August 1, 1969

Author: P. Brandsma

Abstract:

In this article we will investigate the interviewer's influence on the quality of research results a little further, ignoring many interesting aspects of the interview as a research technique and restricting ourselves intentionally, to the interviewer. In this article we will attempt to show, mainly on the basis of American literature, to what extent interview errors are due to factors other than insufficient understanding of the questions and to carelessness in writing down the answers.
