Rūta, your topics seems very interesting! Would you tell more about what is social anthropology and how it can benefit you? Maybe you have some specific examples how did you apply this knowledge in your work?
Asked by Laura Cibulskyte
Why I am in love with anthropology??
Because it can answer - how and why we do the things we do! And if it sounds like part of UX research, you are absolutely right as there are many connections! Anthropology helps me not only in navigating “the waters” of human experience or understanding the users, but also in gathering, interpreting and reporting on UX research.
Being an anthropologist makes me better in understanding and providing insights about the users, their needs, perspectives and wants.
What does anthropology mean for you?

Food sharing is an often researched phenomenon - cultural, social, anthropological. Psychologists researched it as well. Apparently people prefer to buy a bread roll instead of giving money to a poorly dressed person, they also prefer donating food than other supplies (hygiene products, for example) to a welfare center. But when they were given a choice to donate apples, coupons for apples or pens to people similar to them, then no significant preference was observed.
First thing coming to my mind is that people try to "protect" their "investment" - because they believe money will be spent on something else, like alcohol or cigarettes. Or perhaps they believe that poor people are always hungry. Or they think that being hungry is the worst thing that can happen. That might be a really interesting research, don't you think?
