Modification of Mosaic Test for Non-Western Peoples

Modification of Mosaic Test for Non-Western Peoples

  • About

    By Dr Margaret Lowenfeld

    Since the constituent parts of the L.M.T. have been made up of materials familiar to Western peoples, certain assumptions in regard to them will be implicit in all Western users. It is unlikely that any of these would be spontaneously present in non-Western peoples, except through their contact with the West.

    In order, therefore, to make sure that the response of the non-Western subject will be spontaneous, certain modifications in technique are essential. Analysis of the development of the response to the L.M.T. in Western children (i.e. subjects who, because of their youth, cannot already have had experience of this type of material) has shown that there is a regular series of developmental steps which occur in practically all children. It is impossible in the present state of our knowledge to know whether these stages are the manifestation of immaturity as such or of unfamiliarity with the material, and it is this which these notes are designed to enable investigators to test.
