Use of the Shorr Imagery Test with a Population of Violent Offenders
The Shorr Imagery Test (SIT) was administered to 17 violent offenders incarcerated at the California Institute for Men in Chino, California. The results were used in three ways: first, to confirm or deny from quantitative data what Yochelson says makes up “criminal thinking” second, to describe the population in terms of structural difference found in the results; and third, to quantitatively describe four of the modal members of the population on items where their conflict scores differ from the general population norms.
