Abstract The Barrier score measure, derived from responses to Rorschach stimuli, was related to the values held by grade 9 high school students. The Barrier score is reflected in a psychological barrier which surrounds the individual and separates him from his environment. High Barrier individuals have a firmer base of psychological operations than their low Barrier counterparts. Groups of high and low Barrier students rated a series of four person stimuli judged to be representative of the outlook of high and low Barrier persons. Ratings were made using, a common set of values scales. Multivariate group differences were observed for the stimuli: Sportsman (p =.01), Leader of a Country (p =.03), and Astronomer or Scientist (p =.03). These differences were in terms of derived discriminant functions. Comment is offered on the need for refined techniques for identifying person stimuli compatible with the high Barrier and low Barrier image.
