In this paper, two new methods of analyzing repertory grids are explored. The property of transitivity is used to help unravel latent relationships within a grid. Relationships are exposed with the help of transitive closures and principal component analysis. One method produces 'sensitivity maps' by superimposing principal component scatterplots of transitive closures of the (transformed) element (or construct) grid computed with six T-norms onto the principal component display of the original. The other method uses the well known (alpha) cut method to decompose each transitive closure into a partition tree of clusters of elements (or constructs). Both method are illustrated with a small numerical example.
