According to the theory of identification, men are more likely to qualify their Rorschach human content responses as males, and women as females. These assumptions were tested in an empirical investigation using a Belgian nonpatient sample of 800. All human responses and their location were listed. Analyses were carried out on the 10 Cards and on the formal quality (FQo vs. FQu/−) of all human responses according to the subject’s and the examiner’s sex. Variables were first submitted to principal component analysis, and resulting components were compared in a 2 × 2 design in order to assess examiners’ and participants’ sex potential effects on human responses sex assignments. Univariate and multivariate ANOVA revealed no or only negligible differences. In a second step, distributions of masculine, feminine, and neutral human responses across 16 card locations that commonly elicit human responses were submitted to hierarchical clustering in order to identify masculine, feminine, and neutral locations in Rorschach cards. Chi-square tests revealed no significant association between participants’ sex and human responses locations. Results do not corroborate predictions according to the theory of identification but they do, however, highlight the role of the distal features of blots. [less ▲]

AB Presents 12 various types of responses to the Rorschach that indicate a distinctive connection with reality that seems to resemble the inability of transsexuals to resign themselves as easily to perceived reality as to symbolic satisfactions (desired reality). The authors then compare the frequency of such responses in the Rorschach protocols of transsexuals and control subject in order to test the validity of this hypothesis. The research to be reported here involved an initial sample of 36 transsexuals, 24 men and 12 women (with the designated sex determined by the original anatomical sex). These subjects had consulted a psychologist for an evaluation that was required prior to a medical decision to perform an anatomical sex-change operation. Clinical observation indicates that transsexuals (a) correctly perceive the anatomical reality of their sex; (b) do not modify their conviction (that of belonging to the other sex) in accord with this perception; and (c) seek to resolve the resulting dissonance by changing their anatomy rather than their conviction (gender identity). On the basis of this observation, we have inferred that transsexuals should maintain a characteristic relationship with reality that we have formulated in terms of indices to be identified during Rorschach testing.
