Karson, M., & Kline, C. (4/4/04) Two interpretations of Jim Wood’s specimen Rorschach protocol. WebPsychEmpiricist. Retrieved April 4, 2004, from http://wpe.info/papers_table.html.

In What’s Wrong with the Rorschach (Wood et al., 2003), Wood referred to his own Rorschach protocol and asserted that the Comprehensive System (CS) (Exner, 2003) over-pathologized him. We scored and interpreted his answers according to the CS and according to a non-CS method based largely on Mayman’s (1970) interpretation of form quality. We found that the CS interpretation of Wood’s protocol was indeed essentially pathological, while the non-CS interpretation was essentially not pathological. Idiographic approaches to Rorschach data are discussed.
