An experiment was designed to study the effects of color on associational and perceptual functions by making explicit the assumptions underlying the Rorschach color shock hypothesis. These are: Shock reaction on the Rorschach test is essentially and anxiety interferes with mental functioning. Any or all aspects of the Rorschach stimulus can be related to such an anxiety reaction. If color is manifested in a protocol, color is assumed to have played a determining role in eliciting such a response. Response to color is an affective response. The arousal of affects influence the associational and perceptual processes. Subjects who use repression to cope with the aroused affects, manifest color shock phenomenon. If gray-black shock is manifested, it is assumed gray has played a determining role in eliciting such a response. The selection of a particular aspect of the Rorschach stimulus is determined by the personality variables [TRUNCATED]
