This article presents a study to compare Rorschach and Howard ink blot tests on a schizophrenic population from a content point of view. The present investigation is based on a population of 50 routine, testable schizophrenics of at least normal intelligence admitted to the Eastern Oregon State Hospital. On one half of the population was first administered, and the following day the other half; on the other half of the sample the process was reversed. Following this, a list of responses was constructed and each response was entered into like categories of content. The total expanded list grew to 139 separate content response categories. However, 49 of these categories consisted merely in different kinds of animals, 14 in various anatomical responses, and 10 in various humanlike responses.
