As I have mentioned, interesting and interpretable differences were revealed between the Thai children and their British controls. This was certainly useful, since with children so young only projective tests could have been administered. The reason that G analysis is proposed is that the results from it, in clinical psychology, do suggest that it is a method that can allow proper quantification of projective tests and these (despite their limitations which have been discussed) have potential in cross-cultural psychology.

The noted unreliability and lack of validity of projective tests is accepted. 2. Problems with cultural specificity of visual stimuli in particular are accepted. 3. Differences in perception of pictures among different cultural groups are accepted. 4. It is agreed possible that some cultures are not visually-oriented. 5. However projective responses to ambiguous stimuli, such as Rorschach cards, and more free projective tests such as the house-treeperson test (despite its educational demands) may be usable.
