Strengths and weaknesses of naturalistic observations

Strengths: Weaknesses:
More natural behaviour occurs if people are unaware of observation. Observer may affect behaviour if detected.
Studying of animals that cannot be observed in captivity. Difficult to replicate – cannot control extraneous variables.

But in observation the observer can directly check the accuracy from the observed. He can apply various devices to test the reliability of their behaviour. So very often the data collected through observation is more reliable than these collected through interview or questionnaire.
