Summary All research accounts are partial. Who we are--our biographies, experiences, ideological stances, and so on--affects the entirety of the research process. Who we are shapes what types of research questions we find interesting, how we frame our research objectives, how we collect data, how we analyze these data, and how we present our findings. In other words, the construction and processing of knowledge are influenced by and filtered through our personal biographies. Rather than ignoring this fact, researchers must actively account for the self in their research.This case study provides an overview of one researchers struggles to come to terms with her identity vis-a-vis her participants. Specifically, how does being like ones participants shape the framing and conceptualization of a research study, data collection, and analysis? This is less a description of insider research and more a practical account of how to prepare for instances when one sees oneself (or elements of oneself) in their research
