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.
Chapter 9: Quantitative and Indices-based Interpretation of the Rorschach Test
Quantitative and Indices-based Interpretation of the Rorschach Test
The quantitative indices-based interpretations of the Rorschach responses of Klopfer, Beck and Exner's systems are almost similar. Klopfer's interpretation is given in detail in this chapter. However, the interpretations of the Beck and Exner's indices are explained in an earlier chapter in brief. Those interested may refer to Klopfer, Beck or Exner's system for detailed information.
Brief Interpretation of Rorschach Indices
Brief interpretation of Rorschach indices with high or low scores is given further. This is common to almost all systems with little variation in the emphasis on indices.
