A repertory grid study of obsessionality: Distinctive cognitive structure or distinctive cognitive content? (pages 59-66)

Fifteen obsessive‐compulsive patients and 15 normal controls were tested with a repertory grid of standard form. The patient group was not more monolithic than normals in cognitive structure (Makhlouf‐Norris & Norris, 1973) but was clearly differentiated from normals and from Ryle & Breen's (1972) general neurotic grid portrait by a very negative, isolated and extreme view of the self.
