DEPRESSION AND LOGICAL CONSISTENCY OF PERSONAL CONSTRUCTS
Abstract:Neimeyer has suggested that moderately depressed people tend to have relatively disorganized personal construct systems. Non-depressed people see themselves consistently positively, highly depressed people view themselves negatively, while moderately depressed people view the self with ambivalence. Using a grid measure of logical consistency, with a college sample, moderate depression scores were found to accompany greater levels of logical inconsistency. Results offer some support for Neimeyer's suggestion that moderate depression, as opposed to nondepression and deep depression, leads to greater disorganization of construct systems.
