Me again. What a rich thread Carolyn's original posting has created!

Chris Evans quotes Jack Gerber

and goes on to suggest that one way of doing so is to make judgements about
constructs of similar meaning, and group them accordingly: content
analysis, in other words.

A good description relating to the aggregation of grids was published by
Peter Honey as:

Honey P. "The Repertory Grid in Action" _Journal of Industrial and
Commercial Training_ 1977, 11, 452-459

and appeared, together with reliability checks, as a "Cookery Corner"
procedural guide in the Newsletter of the European Personal Construct
Association, 1992, 1, 1, 23-24.
