Psychologists have long advised interviewers to treat interviewees with respect and to avoid giving them too much information.
This can help prevent bias against them and keep them on the straight and narrow.
However, in recent years, a number of psychologists have come to the conclusion that the interview process can become a source of bias, and that it is not a good idea to take a chance on interviewing subjects who have a tendency to say or do things they do not mean.
In this article, I will outline a few ways to avoid bias in interviewing.
I will also provide some suggestions for how to overcome it and to find ways to improve the quality of the interview.
