The Dutch (in general) say things as they are, they don’t mince words or beat around the bush. They say it straight up and direct, whether it’s feedback from your manager, a comment on your new hairstyle or the simple (but direct, with no explanation) “no” when you ask someone for a favour. Yes they are direct. [from the web]
Dutch bluntness has been for me the best methodological advance in my research and interviewing, so far. Method as a counternarrative few interviewees expect.
