Abstract

Consideration of how researcher actions can bias data collection and analysis has been extensively discussed; however little attention has been dedicated to exploring the notion that research participants can be the source of dubious data. While respecting the position that research participants construct their own subjective view of reality, this chapter discusses a potential problem that can influence the voice of participants. In this chapter the idea that cognitive biases can operate covertly to influence the responses of participants is explored, and strategies that researchers may utilise to address this potential problem are discussed.
