  Alone with others: The paradox of privacy in wilderness
 
 
Title: Alone with others: The paradox of privacy in wilderness
Author: Lee, Robert G.
Appeared in: Leisure sciences
Paging: Volume 1 (1977) nr. 1 pages 3-19
Year: 1977
Contents: Attitudinal studies of wilderness visitors have indicated that people seek opportunities to limit interaction with other visitors so as to achieve privacy and solitude. This conventional interpretation of wilderness recreation was evaluated by comparing measures of visitor attitudes and social behavior in the backcountry of Yosemite National Park. Results show no association between visitor attitudes toward crowding and observed social interaction or behavior to avoid such social interaction. These findings suggest that subjective responses of visitors measured by questionnaires and interviews are often of debatable validity. Greater validity can be achieved by avoiding reliance on common-sense interpretations in theory formulation and by employing multiple measurement techniques.
