RESEARCH METHODS2RESEARCH METHODSThe one theorist that has intrigued me is Alfred Kinsey. His passion to provide the public a scientific understanding around sexual desires is inspiring. One of his theories believed that more people either identified with being heterosexual or homosexual and very few as bisexual. I would be interested in seeing this tested today using the same methods.Kinsey used survey methods to gather this information. This included questionnaire and interviewing techniques. Both of these methods have pros and cons especially in 1935 when he started gathering his behavioral data. Questionnaires are more of a convenient method where youcan distribute it to a large number of people and it doesn’t take as much time. However, this method is only good for close ended questions which don’t provide a full picture. Interviews do allow you to have a good understanding but it is time consuming.
