Projective techniques are situations where the participant inserts himself or herself into a unique stimulus situation. Protective techniques all share two features: (a) an ambiguous stimulus is presented to each participant and (b) in reacting to the stimulus the participant will reveal inner feelings that would or could not be revealed through direct questions. These are called “projective” techniques because a participant will project or insert him/herself into the stimulus situation. Researchers believe that when people project in this way, they will divulge things about themselves they might not reveal under direct questioning. So projective techniques are appropriate in cases where the researcher is convinced that the respondent will be hesitant to relate his/her true opinions. Alternatively, the respondent may be willing, but some latent barrier is believed to exist which deters him/her or otherwise causes an untruthful response to a direct question. 12. What is ethnographic research? Discuss how a marketing researcher could get into an ethically sensitive situation using the technique. Ethnographic research was borrowed from anthropology and is defined as a detailed, descriptive study of a group and its behavior, characteristics, culture, and so on. ‘Ethno’ means people and ‘graphy’ means describe. Anthropologists have gained insights into human behavior by living with or among their subjects, called immersion, for prolonged periods to study their emotions, behaviors and reactions to the demands of everyday events. Ethnography employs several different types of research including immersion, participant observation, and informal and ongoing in-depth interviewing. 13. What is physiological measurement? Give examples of two techniques. Physiological measurement involves monitoring a respondent’s involuntary responses to marketing stimuli via the use of electrodes and other equipment. Most people who are monitored find the situation strange, and they may experience uneasiness during the monitoring. Due to this reaction and the hardware required, this measurement technique is rarely used in marketing research. The two physiological measures described in the chapter are the pupilometer and the galvanometer. BMKT 312 C6 Study Guide 4...
