dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the possible use of the Rorschach Inkblot Test to indicate empathic ability. The measure of empathy which was used was the Hogan Empathy Scale (1969).The Hogan Scale was administered to 181 students and two groups were chosen on the basis of the results: a high empathy group of 14 students, and a low empathy group of 15 students. These 29 subjects were then given a group Rorschach Inkblot Test. A Hotelling T2 for contrasting groups was done on the two sets of scores, and no significant difference was found to exist between the Rorschach scores of the contrasting groups. Several reasons for this failure to find a difference were proposed.
