Philip S. Holzman

'This study was an experimental attempt to derive objective measures of castration anxiety and anxiety over loss of love.' These measurements consisted of studies of the content of responses to the Thematic Apperception Test. The subjects, college student volunteers, were divided into three groups of eighteen each. Each group was shown a different motion picture. A portion of the film showing the subincision rites of an Australian Bushman tribe was the stimulus used to evoke castration anxiety; a portion of The Quiet One was used to provoke anxiety over loss of love; and a Chaplin short subject was used as a control film. Following the motion pictures, the TAT protocols were obtained and then were compared for evidences of castration anxiety and anxiety over loss of love. 'The three groups could not be differentiated in terms of the measure of anxiety over loss of love. However, the castration anxiety measure discriminated effectively between the group exposed to the castration anxiety invoking stimulus and the other two groups.'
