Thirdperson techniques

Perhaps the easiest projective techniques to apply, other than word association, are third-person techniques. Rather than asking someone directly what they think, it is couched as 'your neighbour' or 'some people' or some other third party. Rather than asking a housewife why she does not typically provide a nutritionally balanced breakfast, a researcher would ask, 'Why don't many housewives provide their families with nutritionally balanced breakfasts?' The third-person technique is often used to avoid issues that might be embarrassing or evoke hostility if answered directly by a respondent.
