An interviewer or investigator must always have an open mind when conducting an inquiry, according to Colin McLaren. This avoids the problem of tunnel vision, and being persistent with the facts, even if others don’t like it. If the interviewer believes something is wrong, s/he should challenge it, dig deeper until the right answer is found. Present findings without fear, aiming always for accuracy and correct outcomes. Colin provides the example of his own investigation into the JFK assassination.
Colin McLaren advises that when trying to solve a problem and uncover the truth:
- Consider all aspects of a problem with an open mind
- Don't give in, even if it upsets a status quo
- Challenge wrong facts and find the right answer
- Present your findings without fear
- Aim for accuracy and correct outcomes
