The point of the post, and more particularly the interviewing when I do it (still warming up out there, up here), is to identify how things like survey questions are asked with some sort of presupposition attached - be it your race, age, etc. Often who is asking affects the answer - imagine -
-Hello, I'm calling from the NAACP. Would you mind taking a survey?
-Hello, I'm calling from the Interplanetary White Brotherhood. And I need you to answer very carefully.
And, on a slightly different project, I'd like to interview the same person twice, once among friends then later, alone, and see if different responses are given...
