  • Look Inside

 The author reviewed the progress of Rorschach studies of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Early studies have compared BPD with schizophrenia and have tried to differentiate BPD from other mental disorders. Recent studies explore subtypes of BPD and its differences from other personality disorders. In accordance with these changes of approach in BPD studies, researchers used the Rorschach test as a method to describe the psychological structure of BPD. Further Rorschach studies require (1) verification of the findings obtained from previous comparative studies and (2) validation of judgement by clinicians using indices based on daily use.
