Here are the four most common Sexual/Gender Szondi Test Findings, for a pre-WW2 Hungarian population, a base or 4000+ profile samples. in the intervening years, the various social and political events would perhaps, have shifted the order of results, as to frequency of occurrence, but not the interpretive meanings. To understand this system, one has to accept that the like, dislike choices. a subject makes taking the test also serve to approximate that subject's drives, traits and inclinations in his life at the time of of the test. sample..
|Here the subject has chosen both the [h] and [s] photos as like, and in an average amount and not in an excessive amount, also with a 1 choice diskike thus a counter choice, which is considered desirable (as offering some 'restraint' to the strivings implied by a Factor' inate drive potential.. Here [h+] [s+] suggest the striving do not conflict and move togeter but as a working compromise. the [h].and [Factor] If one rt both factors have 5 or 6 choisec this is indentifed as being in 'overload' and reflects that certain perils belonging to the Factor's related drives-trais-impulses, may potentially occur.|
Thus it may be assumed unbalanced or overloaded (Szondi )Factors represent potential symptomatic inclinations for the sujlect. Especially when occurring over several profils taken at the recommended intervals.
[h+]= Need for personal affection, tenderness, body rapport. Feminine-like desires.
[s+]= Need for activity. dominance, preferences for masculine activities Body rapport activities may lack tenderness.
|[h+]=As a setting exists in a significant portion of the population both male and female, a choice suggestive of the need for personal affect exists[h+] and same time [s-] is causes the subject to desire it to be satisfied butcan only take indirect and passive, or even masochistic ways to achive satisfactions for the strivings belong to such a direction opposed setting. .|
[s0] The subject has an indifference to the [s] photos, exeept foe 1 as like and 1 as dislike,(it can be 1 or none at all) therefore the implication is, the [s] strivings in subject's life are being satisfied in some aspects of his life
This minimal choice in a Factor is caled an 'open' and swhen present suggests an weak need to act futher to satisfy its stivings. Also it does not seve to restrain the companion Factor in this case [h+].
|S4 Here the subject avoids the [h] photos [h=0] and with this setting,t loses its balancing regulation from the striving belonging to the [h] factor and wih the disliking the [of the [s] photos would be inclined toward inactivity and the masochistic part of the sado-masochistic spectrum that the [s] photos represent.|
|S4 Here the subject likes the [h] photos and dislikes the [s]photes, a choice moere common to women and when present in men men suggests an move toward n inclination to a female-like role role in life.. When Factoes are set thid contrasting way, it is called 'a diagonal spilt') Diaggonial splits make strong drive needs to occur but characteristically they lose desirable smoothness or ability to fine tune how its strivings are carried into the relationship needs the two factors represent.|
For the next item, for contrast. we will jump to the 'four least frequent occurring' Sexual/Gemder Settings, which represent human outcomes and preference much more difficult or symptomatic for a person.
