It is nice that somebody put it in words. At last. I have always thought
that this two groups resulted from the aims of appicative work: if more
research oriented, then more grids and numbers and if more, say clinical
oriented, then more free to use other ways of aaproaching the matter.
The latter feel that the former group "casts" the clients by greeds, and
the grid users sometimes might feel that the other group let too much
room for free interpretation by investigator. Consequently I also decided
to combine the two ways, but I confess that I am still not sure if it is
only a problem of construct elicitation or also of rating or ranking the
elements afterwards. I would appreciate some discussion on it.
