There are two further procedures for obtaining an accurate understanding of

the interviewee’s constructs. Constructs, being contrasts, can be stated in more

or less detail – in rather global terms, or in very precise terms which relate to

details rather than generalities. Your interviewee might say, in general terms,

that s/he’s comfortable with some people and uncomfortable with others. Or,

alternatively, the contrast may be stated in greater detail, in terms of whether

those people could be trusted to help in a crisis, or could not be trusted in this

way. Your interviewee might, indeed, go to greater detail still, contrasting

people in terms of whether they could be asked for a loan of money if the crisis

were a financial one, or otherwise. There are two different ways in which this

greater detail can be identified.
