Abstract: 

This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of the Rorschach cognitive indices in distinguishing the information processing deficiencies in depressed patients. Clinical interviews based on DSM-IV criteria for depression and Beck Depression Inventory were conducted to select 30 depressed and 30 non-depressed female participants in the same age group and educational level. The Dysfunctional Attitudes Scale (DAS) was run to evaluate the dysfunctional attitudes. The Rorschach test was run and scored using the Exner's Comprehensive System (1990) to evaluate the Perceptual-Thinking Index (PTI) and the cog native components of participants. The results indicated that the Rorschach's Perceptual-Thinking Index is not efficient enough to distinguish the patient's deficiencies in information processing; but a combination of "' several variables of PTI along with other comprehensive cognitive indices of the Rorschach can be useful. This study led to the development of a new index called "Information Processing Deficiency Index (IPDI).
