Rubin, Herbert and Irene Rubin. “Listening, Hearing and Sharing Social Experiences” & “Foundations of Qualitative Interviewing”. In Qualitative Interviewing: The Art of Hearing Data. (Thousand Oaks: Sage Publications,1995): 1-41. (41) Perhaps rather obvious to most, the idea of interviewing is intrinsic to most and individuals partake in the method daily, as far as Herbert and Irene Rubin are concerned. In the opening two chapters of Qualitative Interviewing: The Art of Hearing Data, Rubin explains the nearly inherent affinity that most humans have to conducting interviews as so often “people know whose turn it is to talk and that it is impolite to interrupt…when to talk at length and when to answer briefly”.151 This is an aspect to qualitative interviewing which is crucial and helps to make a trusting connection with the interviewee. As mentioned in past sessions, as well as in the piece, there are different kinds of interviews, each serving their own purpose and each crucial to certain types of research. As explained in the opening chapter, “each…[approach] to interviewing differs somewhat, [but] each reflects the same philosophy of qualitative research: Find out what others think and know, and avoid dominating…interviewees by imposing…”.152 Perhaps this is the best statement in this piece, as, though it can be taken as strictly methodological, the interviewing process reaches into a deeper part of the human psyche than just exhuming the facts. In reality it stands to further one of the worlds most important and universal traits –storytelling. Rubin’s piece exemplifies the dynamics which make interviewing a success as well as a failure, while making the piece translatable to individuals all around. This work takes individuals one step further to understanding the human story through the means of research, creating an availability for empathy and an overall tolerance to an individuals life.
