SILVA, Danilo Rodrigues  and  FERREIRA, Ana Sousa. Color and form quality in the Rorschach method in a group of 11/12 year-old children. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.1, pp. 6-10. ISSN 1677-0471.

Results from some Rorschach normative studies revealed that the said red cards II and two of the three said colored cards VIII and X elicit the highest frequency of poor form quality responses. This fact permitted the formulation of a hypothesis that color could be the cause of such an occurrence. Administration of a standardized and achromatic version of cards II, III, VIII, IX, and X to a sample of 80 Portuguese students of both sexes and aged 11 to 12 years old revealed that only with card III there is strong evidence that the color red is associated with the high frequency of poor form responses. Additionally, results showed that the color is responsible for a higher frequency of good form responses on card X.
