First authoritative and comprehensive study in the field of Inkblot Personality Test, this book describes the historical roots of the three major projective inkblot measures: the Rorschach, the Holtzman Inkblot Technique (HIT) and the Somatic Inkblot Series (SIS). It presents the extensive psychometric background work accompanying the normative data and diagnostic indicators along with indices for selecting executives in a business organization. The book begins with a detailed history of Hermann Rorschach and his early experiments with inkblots in the diagnosis of mentally ill patients. Special attention is given to the administration and scoring of the Rorschach, with the sections detailing the systems developed by Klopfer and Exner. The HIT and SIS are also reviewed in detail, emphasizing their psychometric qualities.

To achieve a higher degree of psychometric reliability and validity, HIT is more demanding for the clinician than the Rorschach test. The accrual of scientific evidence for a clinical application is a slow process with which many practitioners are impatient. Since there are nine times as many inkblots in the combined forms of the HIT as there are in the Rorschach, the basic testing materials are significantly costlier. But the time and effort on the part of the clinician invested in administering, scoring and interpreting ...
