1. Chapter Learning Objectives Addressed: 2 & 3
Purpose/Skills: The sociality corollary described by Kelly defines interpersonal relationships. According to Kelly, one must understand how another person thinks if one is to anticipate how that person will predict events. Construing the constructs of another person is something people do routinely. The goal of this discussion is to give evidence of the impact of constructs on the development of personality patterns, specifically related to interpersonal relationships (Application).
Post a reply to the following: To what extent do you feel arguments result because people construe events with different construct systems? In your opinion, what can be done to reduce such confrontation at a personal level between people? Give a detailed personal example in relation to this theory to support your answer.
