Abstract : This paper reports a test of the amenability of one of the more common projective tests, the Picture-Frustration Test, to a 'set' to give a particular type of response. The results indicate that the Rosenzweig test is quite amenable to the set of the subject taking the test. In four of the six scales significant differences in mean responses were obtained between the two groups. It is clear that for this projective test at least the fact that it is a projection technique does not eliminate the possibility of subjects biasing their results in favorable directions. (Author)
