PESSOTTO, Fernando  and  PRIMI, Ricardo. A study of coding systems for the Wartegg test and their relations with the Rorschach (R-PAS). Temas psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.4, pp. 1847-1860. ISSN 1413-389X.

The Wartegg Test is composed of eight squares with small graphical stimuli in which the person must elaborate drawings from them. Although existing for almost 80 years, it still features inconsistencies in terms of validity evidence and, therefore, its use in decision making. This research aimed to propose a new mode for coding and interpretation for the technique and was divided into two studies. In the first, five different systems were identified with the aim of verifying potential variables with greater discriminative power. In the second, six judges verified which Rorschach variables could be used in a similar way in the Wartegg Test. The new system proposed presents 13 groups of classification criteria, such as orientation, localization, size, content, quality of the objects, form quality, common response, particular characteristics, special codes, line pressure, line type, repetition, sequence analysis and title.

Keywords : Psychological evaluation; self-expression techniques; graphical techniques.
