Ideational expression of hostile impulses


Using an aggressive content scale in the analysis of the Rorschachs of normal, neurotic, and psychotic Ss, it was found that there was a statistically significant difference in hostile ideation among the three groups and between any two. The normals showed the least hostility, next were the schizophrenics, and the neurotic group scored the most. The groups showed a significant difference in the direction of punitiveness, with the normal group tending to direct hostility outward, the schizophrenics inward, while the neurotic group showed no characteristic direction. 30 references.
