..........Affective Features Section............................

6 <= DEPI <= 7 and CDI < 4: It is reasonable to assume that a significant and potentially disabling affective problem exists. Typically, people with DEPI values 6 or 7 complain of distress and/or depression and reports of behavioral dysfunction are common. This finding should be appraised carefully when issues of diagnosis and treatment are considered. Extratensive Style: It can be assumed that, ordinarily, the person tends to intermingle feelings with thinking during problem-solving or decision-making activities. People such as this are prone to use and be influenced by emotion and, generally, are disposed to test out postulates and assumptions through trial-and-error behaviors. Extratensive Style and EBPer < 2.5: It can be postulated that the subject is prone to mix feelings with thinking much or the time when coping is required. However, the person is somewhat flexible in the use of the extratensive style and instances will occur in wich feelings are put aside in favor of a more clearly ideational approach. Right-Side eb > Left-Side eb: It should be assumed that the person is in some distress. Afr Diminished: It indicates a marked tendency to avoid emotional stimuli. People such as this usually are quite uncomfortable when dealing with emotion. As a result, they often become much more socially constrained or even isolated. Typically, when this finding is positive there will be other evidence signifying emotional defensiveness. Intellectualization Index > 6: It signifies that the person uses intellectualization as a major defensive tactic in situations that are perceived as affectively stressful. People such as this tend to become more vulnerable to disorganization during intense emotional experience because the tactic becomes less effective as the magnitude of affective stimuli increases. CP > 0: It signifies that the individual often denies the presence of irritating or unpleasant emotion or emotional stimulation by substituting an inappropriately positive emotion or emotional value to the situation. Typically, people who use this form of defense feel very uncomfortable about their ability to deal adequately with negative feelings and often have problems in modulating their own affective displays. Consequently, they are prone to bend reality to avoid dealing with perceived or anticipated harshness in the environment. This form of defensiveness is often quite transparent and people who use it frequently tend to find themselves being judged by others as being emotionally superficial. (CF + C + 1) <= FC <= 2(CF+C) and C > 1: It indicates that, although the person strives to modulate emotional discharge effectively, potentially serious lapses in modulation occur frequently. FC <= (CF + C) <= FC + 2 and C >1: It indicates some potentially serious modulation problems. People such as this are often overly intense in their emotional displays and frequently convey impressions of impulsiveness. This problem could be the product of control difficulties, however, it is equally possible that it reflects a less mature psychological organization in which the modulation of affect is not regarded as being very important. S > 3: It indicates the presence of considerable anger. Usually, the anger is generalized and has a marked effect on attitudes toward the environment. This is a trait-like feature that affects the psychological functioning of the individual.

..........Control and Stress Tolerance Section..................

Adj D = 0 and CDI < 4: It can be assumed that ordinarily the individual's capacity for control and tolerance for stress is similar to that of most others. 7 <= EA <= 11 and Adj D = 0: It probably reflects a reliable and valid index of capacity for control and stress tolerance. Adj es > 9: It is possible that the Adj D Score could reflect a conservative estimate or even an underestimate of the capacities for control and stress tolerance of the subject. High Adj es suggests the likelihood of some unusual psychological complexity. Left-Side eb > Right-Side eb and es >=4: It can be assumed that the person is experiencing some distress. SumC' > 2: It indicates that there is an excessive internalization of feelings that the subject would prefer to externalize. This psychological process can lead to any of several experiences of subjective discomfort, including anxiety,sadness, tension, apprehensiveness and may also contribute to somatic disruption. SumV > 0: It suggests that the person is involved in more self inspecting that focuses on negative features of the self than is common for most people.

..........Self-Perception Section...............................

Egocentricity Index diminished: It is reasonable to assume that the individual's estimate of personal worth tends to be negative. Such individuals regard themselves less favorably when compared to others. This characteristic is often a precursor to depression. FD > 2 and SumV > 0: It indicates that some unusual self-inspecting behavior is occurring. MOR > 2: It is reasonable to assume that the self-image is marked by negative attributions and, in general, thinking often includes a much more pessimistic view of the self than is expected. It may represent a marked conflict concerning self-image and self-value or, in some instances, it could depict an effort by the individual to exaggerate impressions of being distressed and/or helpless. H + (H) + Hd + (Hd) > 2: In this case, it is reasonable to assume that self-image and/or self value tends to be based laflely on imaginary impressions or distortions of real experience. This more limited self-awareness sometimes serves very negatively in decisionmaking and problem-solving activity and creates a potential for difficulties in relating to others.

..........Interpersonal Perception Section......................

p > a + 1: It signifies that, generally, the individual will assume a more passive, though not necessarily submissive, role in interpersonal relations. People such as this usually prefer to avoid responsibility for decision making, and are less prone to search out new solutions to problems, or initiate new patterns of behavior, especially when the possibility exists that others will assume the necessary responsibilities.

SumT > 1: It indicates the presence of strong unfulfilled needs for closeness. In most cases, the increased intensity of these natural yearnings will be reactive, having been provoked by emotional losses or disapointments that have never been adequately compensated or replaced. In either event, the individual usually harbors an irritating sense of longing or loneliness. Sometimes, the intensity of their need clouds their judgment and they become vulnerable to the manipulations of others. This especially true for those who are either passive or dependent. 2H <= Hd + (H) + (Hd): It reasonable to assume that the individual is as interested in others as most people, but probably does not understand them very well. People like this have a tendency to misread people, and frequently misinterpret social gestures. Sometimes, persons such as this have greater expectations for their own relationships than are reasonable. In other instances, their lack of understanding deads to social blunders that have the potential for alienating others. (H + Hd +(H) + (Hd)) diminished: It should be postulated that the individual is not as interested in others as much as most people. This finding is often positive for those who are emotionally withdrawn or socially isolated form their environment. GHR + PHR > 2 and PHR >= GHR: It can be assumed that the individual generally engages in forms of interpersonal behaviors that are likely to be less adaptive for the situation than might be desirable. 0 < COP < 3 and AG < 2: It is reasonable to assume that the person usually anticipates positive interactions among people and is interested in participating in them. 1 < PER < 4: It suggests that the individual is somewhat more defensive in interpersonal situations than are most people, and often relies on displays of information as a way of maintaining security in those situation. This does not necessarily impair interpersonal relations. It merely signifies that the person may be less secure in situations involving challenges than might be preferred. Isolation Index > 0.32: It is likely that the person is more socially isolated. People like this seem to find it difficult to create and/or sustain smooth or meaningful interpersonal relationships. This finding does not indicate a pathological kind of withdrawal form social intercourse.It merely signals that, for any of a variety of reasons the person does not connect well with others and often finds himself or herself relatively void of rewarding relationships.

..........Information Processing Section........................

Lambda < 1 and 9 <= Zf < 13: It can be surmised that the processing effort is similar to that most of people. D >= 1.6W and Dd > 3: The economy suggested by the large proportion of D answers may not be so substantial and the finding should be reviewed in the context of possibilities provided in the next topic. Dd > 3: It generally indicates a kind of atypical processing that involves more scanning shifts than common and a focus on the minute or unusual features of the blots. M <= 1.2 W and Extratensive Style: It suggests that the person is very cautious, overly conservative, or possibly even lackaadaisical when defining objectives for achievement.

-3 <= Zd < 3: It can be assumed that the scanning efficiency is similar to that of most people.

..........Cognitive Mediation Section...........................

0.78 <= XA% < 0.90 and WDA% >=XA%: It indicates that mediation is usually appropriate for the situation. X-% > 0.25: It signals the likelihood of a serious mediational impairment. FQ+ = 0: No firm conclusions can be drawn, but if the person taking the test is well educated or if the examiner has reason to believe that the subject is intelectually above average, the form quality codings should be reviewed again because the absence of FQ+ responses can signal a more lackadaisical,defensive or even impaired mediational approach. X+% < 0.55 and X-% <= 0.20: This composite suggests that many mediational decisions will be unconventional. It does not reflect a reality-testing problem because it it is appropriate, albeit unusual, for the situation. Instead, it indicates that person is not very influenced by social demands or expectations. This is not a liability, however, it is very likely that many behaviors will be formulated that disregard or avoid issues of social convention.

......... Ideation Section......................................

EB Extratensive and Lambda < 1: It can be assumed that the person is inclined to merge feelings with thinking during problem solving or decision making. Extratensives tend to be more accepting of logic systems that are imprecise or marked by greater ambiguity. They count on external feedback for reassurance, and their judgments are often based on the results of trial-and-error behavior. EB Extratensive and EBPer < 2.5: It can be assumed that the subject is prone to merge feelings with thinking most of the time, but instances will occur in which feelings are pushed aside in favor of an ideational approach that affords careful consideration of various options. MOR > 2: It indicates that the conceptual thinking of the individual is often marked by a pessimistic set. The presence of a pessimistic set causes a person to conceptualize his or her relationship to the world with a sense of doubt and discouragement. This set often causes people to anticipate gloomy outcomes for their efforts, regardless of the quality of the effort.A pessimistic set can lower the quality of conceptual thinking significantly and, at times, can produce a picture very disorganized ideation. Left-Side eb >= 7 and FM < 5: This finding indicates that the person is experiencing a noticeable increase in peripheral mental activity because of situationally related stress. Ordinarily, this will be a transient condition, however, it is important to note that attention and concentration activities can be reduced significantly during its duration. Mp > Ma+1: It indicates that the person has a distinct tendency to defensively substitute fantasy for reality in stressful situations more often than do most people. This can be a very effective defensive strategy and should not be considered as a liability unless other evidence indicates that the person is markedly dependent on others. If the individual is prone to unusual dependence on others, the tendency to abuse fantasy only serves to exacerbate the dependency orientation.

Intellectualization Index 2AB + (Art+Ay) > 6: It signifies that the person uses intelectualization as a major defensive tactic in situations that are perceived as stressful. It is a pseudo-intellectual process that conceals and/or permits denial and, as a result, reduces the likelihood that feelings will be dealt with directly and/or realistically. People such as this are quite vulnerable to accepting distorted concepts and their ideation can become disorganized during intense emotional experiences because the intellectualization tactic becomes less effective as the magnitude of stressful stimuli increases. R >= 17 and WSum6 > 17: It signifies that thinking is likely to be seriously disturbed. When conceptualization is impaired at this level, the reality testing of the individual is usually marginal, at best. Thinking tends to be disorganized, inconsistent, and frequently marked by very flawed judgments. Bizarre conceptualizations are not uncommon, and usually people such as this are unable to contend with the demands of everyday living in ways that will be persistently effective. M- =1: It may represent some peculiarities in thinking that are created by a preoccupation that interferes with mediation or the clarity of thinking. In some cases, a single M- may represent a glimpse of ideational disarray, but when this is true, previous finding concerning the critical special scores are almost always significant.
