Dear Lois -

Thanks for responding to my question:

...what do you mean by 'construct' when you talk about it here?

Following are the key points that I focused on in your response:

> A construct is category in our minds that we use to identify things and
> name them by differentiating these things from other things.


> I think the basic idea of construct theory is that each mind is
>populated by a collection of these constructs.
Have I construed you properly?

Thanks for your comments. I look forward to receiving more/others.

Sincerely, Gary
