CARDOSO, Lucila Moraes  and  OLIVEIRA, Jamille Cavalcante de. Boys and girls: cultural influences in the Zulliger method. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.1, pp.101-110. ISSN 1677-0471.

The objective of this study was to compare the performance in the Zulliger Comprehensive System (ZCS) as a function of biological sex in children from Ceará. The study included 68 children, divided equally in sex and age, ranging from 6 to 11 years. The Raven and ZCS tests were administered to the children individually. The ZCS identified girls' ability to demonstrate affective needs and immature cognitive functioning and, in boys, possible meticulousness, tendencies to take refuge in fantasy, distorted use of verbalization and difficulties in interpersonal relationships. The fact that the ZCS distinguishes observed gender disparities suggests evidence of validity for the method.

Keywords : psychological evaluation; test validity; Zulliger test; children.
