On the pcp oral tradition circuit I have heard it said that Dr Kelly
(being pc - does that mean we are politically correct psychologists?)
regretted having designed repertory grids because of the uses to which
the technique had been put and the way in which people unfamiliar with
his writings had led to PCT becoming associated in some peoples's minds
with grids as the be-all and end-all.

What is the origin of this, and if it is not a myth, has anyone the
reference? Maureen Pope suggested we ask you-all.

Thank you very much.
