Abstract In this paper I examine how informants and I made sense of each other. The two central questions are: (1) How do impairments affect informants self-image? And (2) How do informants perceive me as a 'one of their kind' anthropologist? To address these questions I will: (1) reflect on how I think my background affected the way I presented myself to and interacted with informants; (2) explore how sense-making is accomplished in actual encounters – the emphasis being my own sense-making; and (3) offer 'new' insights on conducting fieldwork among 'people of the same kind' as the researcher, and how these interactions may enrich our understanding of disabled persons' lived experiences. To connect these three levels of sense-making, I will employ the concept of intersubjectivity
