This paper presents and compares newly developed interview techniques (APT and CNET) which were implemented and tested by an online agent in order to measure mental representations underlying activity-choices. The comparison is supported and completed by the results from a first online survey with both new methods which was raised among respondents in the Netherlands. Their resulting mental representations for a simple activity-travel task are analysed and compared and conclusions for further investigations are drawn.
