A review of the Rorschach suicide literature written 10 years ago called for cross validation studies & the use of refined methodology in order to enhance the usefulness of the test as a device for the prediction of suicidal ideation & behavior. The present followup review was undertaken & it was concluded that careful & refined research methodology can somewhat enhance sensitivity of the Rorschach to suicidal activity, but that Rorschach may be an inappropriate technique for assessing suicide.
