This presentation starts with a reflection on three different notions of “the implicit”. Drawing on Personal Construct Theory, ‘Repertory Grids‘ will then be discussed as a powerful methodological approach to analysing the implicit dimensions of human reality construction. Following on from there, the analytical potential of this methodology will be exemplified in the context of building and destroying trust in business relationships. Empirical research will be presented to illustrate the argument of this paper.
