Tong, John E.

"The current paper describes the use of a modified scoring system for the Sorting test, and the application of the test to a group of psychotic and non-psychotic subjects. The relative difficulty of the subtests is examined, and the relationship of the test scores and diagnostic signs to those of the Wechsler Vocabulary and Similarities Tests, the Raven Matrices test and Rorschach test features, is also described. The effect of age and sex is discussed, and it is shown that the main differential sign (patterning) may be related to Rorschach diagnostic signs. Certain practical issues concerning the use of the test are also touched upon, e.g. its use with severely disturbed patients and those of low intelligence, the possibility of modifications and the question of the test providing information not gained from other tests or clinical examination."
