Abstract : A standardization of the Rorschach test was administered, preexperimentally, to subjects who successfully endured 1 wk. of perceptual deprivation and to subjects, the quitters, who were unable to do so. An index of control based on the effectiveness of defense in controlling defense demand was derived for each. The results revealed that the group with a high-control index was composed largely of successful subjects whereas the group with a low-control index consisted largely of isolation quitters. It was concluded that the index of control, derived from the Rorschach, may serve as an excellent predictor of isolation tolerance. (Author)
