HOLTZMAN INKBLOT TEST PDF

Background The Rorschach Test is a projective psychological test developed in by Hermann Rorschach to measure thought disorder for the purpose of identifying mental illness. It was inspired by the observation that schizophrenia patients often interpret the things they see in unusual ways. In the test, the participant is shown a series of ten ink blot cards and directed to respond to each with what they see in the inkblot. Because completing the Rorschach Test is time intensive and requires and psychologist trained in its usage, there have been many attempts to convert the Rorschach into an objective test for ease of use. The first work on the MCR reported impressive predictive power, however later work indicates that scores from the MCR have little value and the test does not appear to have been used for much in the last fifty years. This test is provided here just as a historical curiosity.

The test has a standardized measurement and the scoring criteria in this test are clearly defined, better than the Rorschach test. Scores of HIT are very reliable and the results have shown to be quite valid. The productivity ratio problem has also been overcome as the number of responses have been specified.

In another modified test called HIT 25 was developed in which there were 25 cards. The test is mainly used with college students, average adults, 7th graders, elementary school children, 5-year olds, chronic schizophrenics, mental retardants and depressed patients.
