This study compares the performance of a group of deteriorated schizophrenics and organic brain diseases on the short form of the Stanford-Binet Scale with that of a control group of subnormals grading at the same mental age. Analysis of the data reveals significant differences with respect to vocabulary level, extent of scatter, and relative difficulty of particular test items which may be described in terms of an objectively recognizable "scatter pattern."
