Four research strategies currently employed by mainstream psychologists in researching the experiences and behaviors of human subjects are criticized for diminishing the presence of subjectivity. Two perspectives that tend to exaggerate subjectivity are also criticized. A balanced approach to subjectivity is offered that: (1) acknowledges a theoretical perspective that recognizes that there are invisible or nonsensorial characteristics of subjectivity that have to be theoretically appropriated, and (2) that emphasizes the intersubjective dimension as being critical for properly assessing a balanced approach to human subjectivity. A subject?dependent perspective that can efface its own interests is the attitude that is required for the achievement of objectivity.
