I would like to thank those those who replied to my original query
concerning a person with the construct "fears they'll think I'm
foolish - fears they'll think I let them down."

As a result of these replies, I did some categorising of constructs
gathered about a variety of topics. The most numerous group of
constructs views other people as judgemental, likely to either accept
or reject, judge harshly or judge approvingly. What I find
fascinating is that this seems to be virtually the only way in which
this person construes other people: as judges, i.e. as judges who
will deem him either acceptable or unacceptable. And he is in a line
of work in which he promotes the cases of "excluded" people - and
which he believes he drifted into by accident.

Thank you again.
