Abstract

“A method for validating projective techniques projectively” is suggested. Trial and error are used systematically “with a succession of hypotheses being advanced, checked, rejected or revised until finally the character of the instrument… has been defined as a result of empirical investigation.” “The unique virtue of the recommended procedure of validation lies in its permitting the new instrument to define its own peculiarities regardless of the assumptions that may have led to its construction.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
