Abstract

Hypothesized and confirmed that scores on certain WAIS subtests would be lowered when presented immediately after the Rorschach. College students, who had taken a short form of the WAIS, were divided into 3 groups matched on the variables IQ, sex, and scores on 3 WAIS verbal subtests. Each of the 3 groups was given 1 of 3 treatments immediately preceding re-administration of the subtests: the associative phase of the Rorschach, a modified administration of the Bender-Gestalt test, or no preceding test.
