Individual differences

Perhaps someone has a theory or might like to comment on an
observation I made while completing repertory grids with 40
mental health staff. I found participants were generally either
good at generating constructs or rating elements. Very few
people were good at both, while I found one person who struggled
with both. This finding may be an artefact of using case
scenarios as elements in the repertory grid. People with what
could be labelled obsessional qualities probably had the most
trouble rating elements.

I am not aware of attention in the literature on this issue. Any
