|Elicitation of core
| The ways of
of core constructs are numerous and
different techniques. Core constructs can be explored through
techniques such as laddering and ABC. They may be inferred from self-characterization sketches as
constructs which are given greater importance
others and often repeated (Kelly, 1955, says
that emphasis is a sign of
importance). Other elicitation techniques include the use of implication and
bi-implication grids (the constructs with the biggest number of
represent the core constructs) or resistance-to-change
grid (core constructs
are the ones with the biggest number of resistances to change). They
be elicited by the use of numerous qualitative
techniques ("Rivers of Life"; Pope & Denicolo, 2001, "A Pack
of Lies"; Bright, 1986, "Personal reincarnations"; Stojnov, 2003, etc.).
