Normative Data from Rorschach (Exner) and MMPI Tests for Students Assessed in an Alberta Government Youth Assessment Center.
Anderson, Laurence E.
This study was intended to provide descriptive data of the students in the Medicine Hat Youth Assessment Center, (YAC) in terms of psychological variables obtained from the Rorschach and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). The adolescent subjects were 55 males assessed by the MMPI and 63 males and females assessed by the Rorschach from the opening of the YAC in 1979 until the summer of 1982. Exner's (1982) Rorschach norms and Marks, Seeman and Haller (1974) MMPI norms were used. Both tests meaningfully differentiate YAC students from the normative populations. MMPI results indicated heterogeneous personality types. Rorschach testing suggested these characteristics: oppositionality, poor reality testing, marked psychological pain, passivity, unconventionality, emotional and complexity avoidance, under-incorporating organization.
