The values of the journey: sympathetic objectivity
Sympathetic Objectivity Part 1. Sriracha sauce for journalism
Sympathetic Objectivity Part 2. At A Journey we have a different approach which is built into our organization. Our idea of sympathy is that we have a “fellow-feeling” with our respondents. This solidarity is extended to “fellow understanding.”
Sympathetic Objectivity Part 3. Sympathetic objectivity may help us to bring together the sympathy of the heart with the objectivity and skepticism of the mind.
Sympathetic Objectivity Part 4. Get more bang for your buck with empathy first. Open ears and heart makes for better interviews. Skepticism later, if needed.
