  • Never offer your opinion;
    • Do not agree or disagree with the comments
    • Do not “lead” the respondent, instead ask neutral questions
      • “What do you think about X?” vs.
      • “X is just great, don’t you think?”

  • Make sure you understand the point
    • To get more detail: “Can you tell me more about that?” or “Can you give me an example”
    • If unclear: “Can you explain that again?” “Why do you say that?” or “Let me make sure I’ve got it right. What you said is XYZ. Is that correct?”
  • To get a history or chain of events:
    • “What happened next?”
    • “How did X respond?”
