Abstract

A controlled test of the proposition that “selectivity in perception can be functionally guided by the adjustmental ‘set’ of the individual” is offered. The Depression key of the MMPI served as a basis for making predictions regarding the first responses to each of the 10 Rorschach cards. About 90% of all first responses given by the sample tested were limited to 5 determinants, all of which involved form as a primary condition. “This study is concerned with dynamic perceptual theory and the results are without direct diagnostic application.” 17 references.
