implementation of self-disclosure in not inherently disruptive to the interview process, it
encouraged a non-intended role reversal in the dialog of this discussion.
In the context of the research interview, self-disclosure may also serve to interrupt the
cadence of the interview process and introduce a sense of confusion into the dialog. The
following sequence of text will illustrate how self-disclosure may threaten the interactive nature
of the interview process. In this sequence of dialog, the participant has been asked to describe his
first memories of being gay. He offers a memory of school as a way to recall his experience.

P:
I was earlier than some of the boys. Seventh grade was when we first went to the
locker room to change clothes. It was like Pandora’s box had opened. I thought,
“This is incredible, we should get naked for every class. I could do this eight or
ten times a day!”
I:
So, it is interesting that these first experiences that you are telling me about are
kind of sexual. The way that you described identity was in some sexual terms. The
things that you are looking more for are non-sexual things, other ways to meet

have anything to say about that?
P:
It is interesting. I hadn’t thought of that. Along the lines of that, I kind of criticize
the gay community for being so sexually oriented, but I think it probably goes
deeper than that. I am frustrated and even disappointed in myself that I am so
sexually driven. We can all say, you know, I have met some nice men who had the
characteristics emotionally that I would like, but let’s face it, I guess I am
