Convergence of Rorschach variables and MMPI-A PSY-5 Scales: With and Without Response Character Styles

Meredith Aceste, Pace University

Abstract

This study was an effort to extend Meyer's (1997, 1999, & 2000) findings regarding how response-character styles relates to the convergence of the Rorschach and the PSY-5 scales in an adolescent inpatient psychiatric sample (N=673). The MMPI-A PSY-5 constructs and the Rorschach variables measuring similar constructs were generally negatively correlated in adolescents with discordant response-character styles and positively correlated in those with concordant response-character styles. The most important conclusion that can be drawn from these findings is that the Rorschach and MMPI-A PSY-5 scales do demonstrate convergent validity across some theoretically related constructs once response-character style is taken into account.^
