The Interview: Special Form of the Dyad.
Rogers, Don
The interview is a special form of dyadic (unequal two-party) communication. It can be defined as a two-way vocal interaction system which is time-bound and in which the interviewer serves as a delimiter of the topics considered. Further, the interviewer seeks information from the interviewee, who functions as an information source in order to accomplish a specific, preselected, limited end. The structure of an interview is dyadic and "information seeking" and is composed of dialogue and action modes. Also, in an interview, feedback occurs in real time and is essential for use by the interviewer in controlling the interview. (A brief definition of the following types of interviews is included: journalistic, research, examination, interrogation, counseling, information giving, appraisal, psychoanalytic, persuasion, Socratic dialogue, advocacy, action/results, selection, recruitment, screening, placement, and termination.)
