Fransella F. (2016) What is a personal construct? In: Winter D. A. & Reed N. (eds.) The Wiley handbook of personal construct psychology. John Wiley & Sons, Chichester: 1–8. Fulltext at
At its simplest, a construct is a jargon term embedded centrally within George Kelly’s (1955) personal construct theory. It is the unit of his theory and that which is commonly thought to be measured in some form of repertory grid. It is a porthole through which we peer to make sense of the events swirling about us. One property of a construct is bipolarity. I am therefore going to start by telling you two things I think a construct is NOT before telling you what I think it is – that is, I am going to start by defining its opposite pole.
