Abstract

For some time, psychologists have postulated the existence of a relationship between responses to perceptual tasks and responses to tests proported to measure personality variables. As Thurstone (8) states, "The fundamental hypothesis involved here is that the dynamics of perception and other restricted functions are not isolated and that these several functions are so related that some characteristic of the person as a whole might be inferred from the dynamics of one of these functions." Responses in terms of color or form to an ambiguous stimulus are thought by many to be correlated with more global characteristics of the individual. The labels 'color dominant' and 'form dominant' call to the minds of most clinical psychologists adjectives which are descriptive of the individual's mode of dealing with life situations.
