Joseph Pelrine - The 5-channel interviewing model
One of the challenges in UX interviewing is obtaining from the interviewee cognitive and emotional information processed at the subconscious level, information that the interviewee themselves is often not aware of. These weak signals are of great importance, though, as they provide the stimulus for a positive or negative bias towards the situation or product being analysed, as well as towards the interviewer.
The 5-channel model (Pearse and Lansley 2010), based on the work of Paul Ekman and others, was originally developed for use in a forensic interviewing context. It provides an integrated model for observation and analysis of both verbal and non-verbal signals, and could potentially be useful in UX interviewing situations.
This talk will provide an overview of the 5-channel model and the related PEER model for interview structuring (Pearse and Gudjonsson 2016), with the goal of stimulating discussion as to the applicability of the models to the UX context.
