Jack Gerber's response prompted me to add my two cents worth in this
discussion. I would expect each individual to have his/her own unique
construct system content, but surely socialization into a culture
(national, ethnic, organizational, or professional) influences a group to
share certain constructions. My own work in this area has involved
content analysis of responses to Crockett's Role Category Questionnaire
(see the 1988 and 1993 volumes of the IJPCP). We did find discerible
differences between various groups' (e.g., college students vs. adult
members of an insurance company) uses of constructs.
