It can take many forms; forms that which humans witness on a daily basis. As written in ancient Greek mythology, the mythical Sirens portray the hardships and consequences of temptation.

The sirens were considered ally’s with Persephone, the daughter of the goddess Demeter.

They were creatures with the body of a bird and the face of a women. They waited for passing ships and with their music they made sailors leap overboard to their doom.

From my interview experience I believe there are multiple pros and cons of using them as a research tool. One of the main pros is the easy transparency and clarification of the data collected from interviews, rather than simply looking at research articles, etc. I was face to face gathering my information, therefore if I needed anything clarified, or described more in depth it was easy to get that for my research. I can also adjust my questions for easy understanding depending on who I’m interviewing which I would not be able to do if I only used something like a questionnaire. One con that did not affect me but came to mind is if I were to be interviewing multiple individuals it could be time consuming trying to arrange interviews around everyone’s schedule. My interview was slightly time consuming, therefore another con I noticed is that when using an interview as a research tool, my candidates could get tired and put less thought into their responses towards the end of the interview.
