Subjectivity Gain

Interviewing for Education and Social Science Research: The Gateway Approach,
Carolyn Lunsford Mears, Palgrave/Macmillan, 2009, page 28

On the other hand, Mears quotes Elliot Eisner to show how subjectivity can be a valuable asset:

Eisner employed the term connoissseur to describe one who has deep knowledge about a subject and who can best use that knowledge judiciously in interpreting meanings and nuances that might be missed by others less informed. Adept researchers capitalise on their prior knowledge and experience, turning what might have been a drawback into an asset. They also check for meaning and confirm that they are correctly interpreting what their narrator is saying without prejedging based upon their prior knowing.
