A group of three is the minimum necessary to make such comparisons (two to find similarities and a third to note differences). A MANUAL FOR THE REPERTORY GRID Administration Phase.

The Repertory Grid is an instrument, based on Personal construct Theory, designed to capture the dimensions and structure of personal meaning. Its aim is to describe the ways in which people give meaning to their experiences in their own terms.
