Setting, Location, Intensity, and Approach in the Interview

Abstract

To ensure the success of an interview, investigators have to consider many factors, including where the interview will take place, how the participants will be positioned in the interview room, how intensely the interviewer will press for information, and what approach he or she will use in questioning the interviewee. All these elements require careful planning because they have a significant impact on the outcome of every interview. This chapter suggests ways in which environmental setting, participant location, intensity, and approach can be incorporated into the interview process.
