Abstract:

According to personal construct theory the personality is shaped by the constructs the person uses in anticipating events. In this study grid measures of logically inconsistent construction and preemptive or reductionistic construction are compared with scores from the 16 P.F. Questionnaire. Logical inconsistency was correlated with several traits suggesting neuroticism. Preemption was correlated with several traits suggesting an incredulous approach to life. These results are in agreement with the theoretical assertions of personal construct psychology.
