GUIMARAES NETO, Armante Campos; AMARAL, Anna Elisa de Villemor  and  VIEIRA, Philipe Gomes. Schizophrenia simulation in the Rorschach Test (R-PAS). Aval. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.20, n.2, pp. 171-181. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study compared the performance in the Rorschach Test (R-PAS) of people informed about the symptoms of schizophrenia and asked to respond to the Rorschach trying to impersonate a patient with this diagnosis (n = 40) with that of patients diagnosed with schizophrenia (n = 35). Participants responded to the Rorschach Test (R-PAS), the Magical Ideation Scale (MIS) and the Inventory of Problems-29 (IOP-29) trying to simulate schizophrenia. The results of the comparisons between the groups showed statistically significant differences for the variables (Hd), An, FQo, CFQ, CF-, P, M, PEC, WSumCog, MAH, GHR and Complexity. A positive and strong association was also found between the scores obtained in the IOP-29 and the gross scores of the MIS (r=.73, p=.0001). The findings show that even faced with attempts to distort the responses to the test, simulators cannot distance themselves from their perceptual accuracy.

Keywords : simulation; schizophrenia; malingering; Rorschach method (R-PAS).
