'Rorschach' Wikipedia Entry Angers Some Psychologists
According to the New York Times, the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Saskatchewan is now investigating Heilman because of complaints from two psychologists who claim that his actions represent "serious misconduct" and "disrespect." Heilman likened the investigation to "intimidation tactics," adding that the complaining parties are "trying to close the doors on scientific discourse."
A study published in Psychological Science in the Public Interest concluded that the Rorschach test is generally not all that reliable, saying that "clinical evaluations should be based on more dependable assessment techniques, such as structured psychiatric interviews." It seems, then, that the only doctors Heilman may be disrespecting are those who'd rather rely on the results of a possibly outdated and biased test.
