Female Private Investigators very often have the natural ability to empathize with others, to quickly build up client trust and very often than not, have high observational skills.
This skill is especially important when dealing with a delicate matter (for example, reuniting a birth mother with their birth child, or locating a family member who has not notified the family of their current whereabouts and does not wish to be found).
Female investigators in most situations, tend to be more sensitive and are usually very patient and tactful throughout the enquiry. The nurturing side of the female P.I. comes into play when dealing with a delicate enquiry.
A trust situation with clients can be instantaneous or can be built up gradually and it is necessary to have a total understanding of the client’s current problem and concerns. That well known ‘female intuition’ also plays a big part in the female private investigator’s role.
Females possibly have a more relaxed attitude whilst encouraging people to divulge information regarding sensitive issues. Trust is very important during an investigation, therefore building that trust between investigator and client can be difficult, but rewarding, however, if an empathetic, understanding attitude and approach is used throughout, satisfying results can be achieved.
Not all enquiries are guaranteed to end well. For extremely sensitive enquiries – for instance; a birth mother looking for the child she had to part with for one reason or another, or an adult seeking out their birth mother – the person being sought has the right to refuse to give the Private Investigator their current contact details. There is a safe and secure way to get around this dilemma and it requires careful handling – and it does work. Put simply; the Private Investigator can be the “go-between”. Again, skill and empathy are needed to be able to successfully handle such an possibly explosive situation.
Females make up a small percentage of all privately licensed security professionals in Australia, thus giving female PIs an edge because they can offer something different from their male counterparts. They are especially good at undercover work because successfully blending into situations without drawing attention to oneself, is important in some cases.
