Abstract : The empirical Proverbs Test items are related to the theoretical structure from which they were derived. The empirically derived scores for items on the Proverbs Test were weighted to maximize the identification of individuals diagnosed as Character and Personality Disorders. These scores were related to the theoretical psycho-social phases derived from the writings of Erickson. The empirical derivation of the final test forms were based on the study of over 2,000 young men between the ages of 17 and 25. The two forms of the Proverbs Test are not equivalent forms. (Author)
