Abstract : Two forms of a Proverbs Test were developed that discriminated between young males who were diagnosed, using the 'Armed Forces Nomenclature', as falling within the 'Character and Personality Disorders' category, and young men who did not receive such a diagnosis. To test the generality of the test for identifying the personality and character disorders, both forms of the test wereADMINISTERED TO A GROUP OF APPROXIMATELY 1,500 INCOMING WOMEN RECRUITS. There were 91 of these young ladies who were diagnosed as having personality and character disorders. This group made up the experimental group. The control group consisted of 508 young ladies, randomly selected from the remainder of the 1,500 recruits, who had not received the diagnosis of character and personality disorders. (Author)
