Abstract
This study investigates the meaning of "feedback" at MAX IV Laboratory using a phenomenological approach. Outcomes of the study contain: (a) significant themes that respondents speak about regarding “feedback”, including its forms and functions, interpretability, the role of culture, together-being, longing towards feedback, the perception of MAX Lab, etc.; (b) similarities and differences among the perceptions of feedback presented in a holistic view. The paper further discusses some issues that arose from the themes, such as the nearness of “self” and “others”, potential worries, the Law of Jante, etc. The study reveals a picture of individuals who acknowledge the benefits brought by “feedback”; while some of them can be blocked by their...

This study investigates the meaning of "feedback" at MAX IV Laboratory using a phenomenological approach. Outcomes of the study contain: (a) significant themes that respondents speak about regarding “feedback”, including its forms and functions, interpretability, the role of culture, together-being, longing towards feedback, the perception of MAX Lab, etc.; (b) similarities and differences among the perceptions of feedback presented in a holistic view. The paper further discusses some issues that arose from the themes, such as the nearness of “self” and “others”, potential worries, the Law of Jante, etc. The study reveals a picture of individuals who acknowledge the benefits brought by “feedback”; while some of them can be blocked by their worries from more practice of “feedback”, some others, unaware of such worries, might perceive this “conservativeness” in negative senses. With a standpoint that “there is no invariable meaning feedback, but only the phenomenon feedback as it appears”, this study facilitates diverse perceptions of “feedback”, which offer inspirations for both future research and the development of the MAX Lab.
