AbstractThis research examines how technology manifests itself in the social & psychological construction of identity. Using an active listening assessment scale, 20 online chat interview transcripts were analyzed. Additionally, follow-up interviews were conducted with the participants for their reactions to interviewing online. The study suggests that interviewing online is a plausible means for cultural identity studies, and that online chat rooms are a possible medium for the telling of narratives.
