A Rorschach Study on the Psychological Characteristics of Alcoholics

ABSTRACT

This monograph of 64 pages reports investigations by means of the Rorschach test in 100 alcoholic patients, 77 men and 23 women. The report limits itself to a description of a Rorschach sign list, which is published in full; to the application of this list in alcoholism; and to a description of a method of statistical analysis developed by the authors for studying the Rorschach test signs. The authors report findings in alcoholic addicts as compared with other clinical groups, and their conclusion as to the alcoholic addict's personality.

The monograph does not include a sample of the original Rorschach test records. A report on a Rorschach test investigation, without a sample of original test records, amounts to asking a reviewer to accept interpretations on faith, without the raw material that was interpreted. The authors do promise (page 13) that "detailed reports will be made elsewhere," since the present study
