2.Is an interview guide restricting or flexible? Is having a guide important to getting good data?I believe an interview guide is flexible. It needs to be flexible because what if you’re dealing with two different people, one who loves to talk and one who is super shy. It’s important to have a good guide so you can keep the interview on track and on point, and so you can keep the interviewee engaged and interested.

After Watching1.After hearing the speakers’ thoughts, how does interviewing help anthropologists address their research questions? Interviewing helps anthropologists reach their research questions. Interviewing strengthens the curiosity of the interviewer. When they get answers to a question, it may lead to more information and more research questions beingformed or elaborated on. Interviewing helps address their research questions because sometimes you may receive unanticipated information that will help tie together the answer. 2.How and whydo research questions and interview questions differ? Interview questions and research questions differ, but they are complimentary. Interview questions are small parts of what is leading to the answer of the research questions. Research questions are questions that cover the broad themeof the interview being conducted. 3.Why was having an interview guide important to these researchers? Why was it also necessary for them to be open to changing it as they proceeded through interviewing?It is important for the interviewers to have an interview guide so they can stay on topic with the questions and the information they need to receive. It’s necessary for them to be open because the interviewee could have other insight that would be helpful for their research. Being flexible, they can adjust their research questions to have the best outcome.
