FQ-%, with the R-PAS showing a higher mean on FQo% (d = .29), XA% (d = .34), WDA% (d = .28), and the CS higher mean on FQ-% (d = .35) which confirms the results obtained at response level.
An examination of relative "card difficulty" (expression from Herman Rorschach) by R-PAS coding is given in Table 3, where each card is listed in descending order on FQo% and in ascending order on FQ-%.
The FQ of the responses is part of some R-PAS indexes such as GHR and PHR, EII-3, TP-Comp, SC-Comp, Complexity, FQo%, FQu%, FQ-%, M-, and WD-%.
The purpose of employing the new R-PAS system led us to take into consideration the changes in FQ coding as a crucial concern.
In the chapter "Comparing the R-PAS and the Rorschach CS FQ tables" of the R-PAS Manual (Meyer et al., 2011), the authors asserted that there are considerable differences between the R-PAS and RRC-modified CS classification (made by the Rorschach Research Council) of objects.
The Rorschach was administrated according to the CS (Exner, 2003) and the responses were coded according to the CS listing of FQ (Exner, 1995/1999), to the R-PAS FQ tables (Meyer et al., 2011), and to the Brazilian location and FQ list (Villemor-Amaral et al., 2007).
Cardoso (2012) results coincide with those of the present study that showed substantial agreement between the CS and R-PAS on FQn, FQ-, FQu, and FQo when the comparison was at the response level ([kappa] = .759), however, at the protocol level, the results confirm a difference between both systems on FQo and on FQ-, with R-PAS showing higher values on FQo while the CS showing higher values on FQ-.
Another interesting piece of data was that the R-PAS highest scores of FQo% were found on cards V I and III while the highest FQ-% scores were found on cards VI, X and IX.
Summarizing, it was found that the R-PAS elicits more FQ ordinary coding while the CS elicits more FQ minus coding.
On the R-PAS, FQ is based in two elements: Fit and frequency.
We and the external judge have coded this answer as FQ- in both CS and R-PAS. We quote G.
As we could see, the CS and the R-PAS have different ways based on different strategies on coding the FQ- and FQu.
