Wood, J. M., Nezworski, M. T., Garb, H. N., & Lilienfeld, S. O. (2001). Problems with the norms of the Comprehensive System for the Rorschach: Methodological and conceptual considerations. Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice, 8(3), 397-402.

In their article, the current authors reviewed results from 32 studies and concluded that the norms of the Comprehensive System (CS) for the Rorschach inkblot test are inaccurate and tend to make nonpatient Americans appear psychologically disordered. T. A. Widiger, J. Hunsley and G. Di Giulio , and E. Aronow all agree that the review uncovered serious problems with the CS norms. However, CS proponents J. E. Exner, Jr. and G. J. Meyer disagree. This reply addresses these criticisms and expresses the hope that CS proponents will eventually acknowledge the importance of the research findings and develop more accurate norms.
