The Bender-Gestalt Test: A Factor Analytic Study of Each Design as it Relates to Various Individual Personality Traits

The Bender-Gestalt Test: A Factor Analytic Study of Each Design as it Relates to Various Individual Personality Traits

Date: May 1968
Creator: Yeargan, Dollye
Description: Is it possible that the Bender-Gestalt (B-G) protocol of an individual is complex of many different, discrete, perceptual tests? Is it possible to find the relationships among the scoring factors for the B-G and by factor analysis find some systematic order among the individual designs useful in predicting specific behavioral propensities? If a consistent relationship can be shown to exist between scorable deviations on the B-G designs and certain personality variables among individuals, then perhaps a start can be made toward predictive validity of the B-G.
