Core Constructs

Hi Devi and Esteban,

I was wondering if you, or any other PCP collegues might comment on the
difference between core and superordinate constructs that Esteban mentioned
in his original message. I had the understanding that "core" and
"superordinate" were two metaphors describing the same thing. In terms of
superordinate constructs, we are looking at how some constructs are
hierarchical to others. Core constructs, because they explain what is
personally meaningful to an individual, are superordinate to other
constructs held by the individual. Am I on the right track here?

Thanks much,

Vic Jones
