NASCIMENTO, Regina Sonia Gattas F. do. A normative research on the Rorschach comprehensive system in the city of São Paulo. PsicoUSF [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.2, pp. 127-141. ISSN 1413-8271.

The Rorschach method has proven quite efficient as an instrument for personality investigation and diagnosis. Comprehensive system has guaranteed the Rorschach the status of an instrument of great reliability because of its objectivity and the precision of its results. However, for this to occur, it is necessary to work with appropriate norms for a population. So, we carried out a normalization study in order to find results for the better utilization of the comprehensive system in our milieu. The Rorschach was applied individually in 200 non-patient subjects of both sexes, residents of the City of São Paulo, ages ranging from 17 to 65, of all levels of education and socio-economic classes. The results show differences when compared to Exner’s norms, but similarities to studies presented by specialists in other countries, especially those of a Latin origin. These results indicate the presence of cultural influences in Rorschach variables.
