Rorschach's Test. II. a Variety of Personality Pictures: By Samuel J. Beck, Ph.D. New York: Grune & Stratton, 1945. 400 pp.

Review by:
Frederic S. Weil

In his previous volume, Rorschach's Test, I. Basic Processes, Dr. Beck has offered a detailed presentation of the experimental procedure, of the single factors and of the scoring.

The present volume consists of two parts. The first deals essentially with the psychological significance of the various Rorschach factors; the second contains a collection of about fifty Rorschach records and interpretations grouped in selected psychiatric chapters, under the titles: The Intelligence Curve, The Adolescent Years, Schizophrenic Solutions, Neurotic Struggles, Before and After: The test repeated in the same persons.

In an introductory chapter, Concerning Personality, Beck attempts to state the sense in which he understands personality. Intelligence, affectivity, and a third category, creative imagination, are considered basically as constitutional potentialities. 'Some men are bigger and better than other men.' The psychological forces altering, constricting and deforming such a personality are identified as anxiety, repression and inhibition. Anxiety is regarded as of the first importance.
