Help with the laddering procedure

Hi there everybody. I haven't been here for a while. To refresh everyone's
memory, I am examining the personal constructs of high and low
procrastinators with regards to their academic tasks. I am also going to
be laddering upwards. I did a pilot test today and when I started
laddering, I said "I see that you used the constructs boring versus
interesting, with the latter being described as the more positive of the
two. Why is it important/advantageous (I used the two interchangeably
that a no-no?) that something is interesting?"
Is that the proper way to prompt the person or am I missing something
here? Thanks in advance.

You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you've collected a lot of
empty yesterdays.
