About this title


Is the Rorschach test, a projective technique that involves verbal responses to a series of ink blots, useful in cultures other than the one where it originated? After many years of research the authors have concluded not only that it is but also that "cross-cultural comparison of psychological tests is . . . essential for further research in social psychiatry and psychological anthropology, as well as developmental psychology." Their book is the first systematic presentation of the use of the Rorschach test cross-culturally.

Three different cultures are selected: Japanese, Algerian Arab, and Apache native American. Rorschach testing of members of these cultures corroborates the universality of human associative patterns influenced by affectivity, regardless of culture.

A scoring system developed by De Vos is a major contribution to a new and reliable way of approaching, organizing, and integrating Rorschach responses in diverse cultural settings. With research contributions by Orin Borders, Richard Day, Akira Hoshino, Eiji Murakami, Takao Sofue, and Mayumi Taniguchi, the authors demonstrate how within-group and between-group differences can be methodically studied, to yield new insights into the interrelationship of personality and culture.

From the Inside Flap:

"The approach is highly original. . . . Very important for all professionals using the Rorschach."—Theodora M. Abel, University of New Mexico

"This work has significant theoretical importance in the field of cross-cultural diagnosis and field methodology . . . written in a clear, concise, lucid style."—Edward F. Foulks, Tulane University, New Orleans VA Medical Center
