Abstract
This chapter explores how the application of the GRID instrument in black South-African samples was problematic. It generated data with very low reliabilities and a difficult to interpret structure. Through a process of focus groups and pilot studies, adaptations were made to the GRID instrument in terms of instructions and especially in terms of the response scale for the Setswana language group. The adapted instrument was applied in a Setswana student sample. Although still less reliable than most GRID data, the valence dimension could be reliably identified, and to some extent also the power dimension.
