Abstract
Many studies focusing on the design activity use the interview technique as a part of their investigation. Methodological discussions about the interview setting as the locus of a social interaction between the interviewer and the respondent and its implications for the interpretation of the obtained data are nevertheless rarely found in publications within our design community. Part I of this publication reviews the positions taken on that matter in different design research studies.

Part II presents the social aspects affecting the interviews on the theme of design activity and the means to identify and deal with these factors. By systematically taking into account this set of social aspects during the of interview data analysis, it is believed that it is possible to identify and deal with the bias induced by social factors. The two parts can be read independently. (Less)
