Dear Anna

Thanks for that.  I think BNIM could add something unique to your study although I'm struggling to shift my brain into BNIM mode so bear with me.

In order to address your research question I can see several different SQUINs (the question which opens the first interview and frames their initial narrative)  which could be used - either the whole life or looking just at the period of life since retirement (or some measure in between). If you chose just to look at the life since retirement BNIM has something to offer (see last paragraph). However if you ask for the whole life story (or perhaps since they started work) I think this is where BNIM really adds value. You could then get a sense of the 'before retirement subjectivity' providing you with insights into who the person was before retirement which I think provides very valuable context to looking at the post retirement subjectivity.  It would enable you to assess the post retirement choices with some awareness of who they were before.  This would greatly enrich your interpretation of their adjustment.

Which ever you do you will get a richer and more complex understanding of their 'retired' subjectivity. You won't just get the choices they made but will be able to get a sense of how they experienced those choices. BNIM allows you to strip away their rehearsed accounts of retirement and what is expected during that time to access how they actually experienced it - all the conflicts, confusion, elation and guilt that may (or may not) have occured around that time.  The use of narrative questioning is particularly powerful in this context - by getting detailed accounts of life experiences it is possible for the researcher (initially with the help of a panel), informed by all the other interview material, to interpret what the event may have meant ofr the interviewee without being limited purely by the interviewees own evaluation and understanding.

Sorry for my lack of eloquence and clarity this morning! Let me know if you have further questions.

Best 

Caroline

Dear Caroline,
1) its rather why to use this method - what more than other could it bring to the project
2) I believe that BNIM will help me to understand the choices that people did while redefining their lifestyle after retirement and it would be perfect to catch all aspects like motivation structure at that time and also external factors - environmental, historical. The fact is that I was on this short briefing and I just loved this method and I'm still in process of learning it and gaining more information about it's advantages. So I thought that maybe someone who has already use it could help me with arguments that could convince my SV.
BR,
Anna
