Abstract

The validity of the Rorschach as an instrument to assess impulsivity was examined in a sample of 55 adolescent psychiatric inpatients. The Rorschach variables considered to be related to impulsivity (D, Adjusted D, M, Afr, X + %, FC:CF + C, and L) were used to predict performance on the Gordon Diagnostic System (GDS). Only the discriminant function for the GDS Delay Task (which assesses the ability to formulate response strategies and to benefit from feedback) was statistically significant, with a 76.36% correct classification of subjects. The Rorschach variables with the highest correlations within the discriminant function were D, FC:CF + C, and M. The results of this study appeared to provide some support for the utility of the Rorschach in the assessment of impulsivity.
