Abstract : A study was designed to examine the effect of color on the scoring of TATs. The stories written in response to a series of six colored pictures were compared to the same pictures presented in black and white. A sample of 107 high school students of both sexes was used. Each story was scored for need for achievement and hostile press. A word count was also made. In agreement with the findings of related studies, the results were studied for evidence that there was a difference in either score depending upon whether or not colored or black and white pictures were used as stimuli.
