In the self-confrontation method (SCM), a person connects affect-denoting terms to important experiences or "valuations" by rating each affect on a 0-5 scale of intensity. These affects are grouped into four sum scales: Self, Other, Positive, and Negative. Six valuation types can be constructed on the basis of the scale profile of each valuation. We investigated four methods for depicting single valuation systems within a 2-dimensional plane. A study using 210 single grids showed most methods to generate high quality depictions. One "fixed" method, in particular, was considered most promising. Its form consisted of a hexagonal frame, of which the angular points represented the most extreme elements of the six valuation types. Valuation systems could then be projected against a theoretically meaningful background. Implications for practice and research with the SCM were considered.
