Psychiatry related information on Q-Sort

  • Defense mechanisms were assessed using Cramer's (1991a) Defense Mechanism Manual for TAT stories; behavior was based on observer Q-sort ratings (Block, 1978) [1].

High impact information on Q-Sort

  • Sixty-eight pictures of food items were used for the Q-sort called the Nutri-Food Sort [2].
  • RESULTS: Factor analysis of the Q sorts indicated that the participants had a unanimously positive experience [3].
  • DESIGN: We evaluated the effects of diagnosis (CLP, CPO, or no diagnosis) and age (3, 12, and 24 months) on facial attractiveness ratings derived from a modified Q-sort method [4].
  • Two factors were identified from Q-sort correlations: Homelikeness-Institutionality and Spatial Organization as well as a third variable, privacy [5].
  • The results, obtained from a series of card-sorts using a Multiple Sorting Task and a modified Q-Sort, found that nurses used four global sub-categories of severity to categorise them [6].

Chemical compound and disease context of Q-Sort

  • An initial set of 55 CPI items were derived using an "ideal" autonomy Q-sort profile as a selection criterion, and an Alpha factor solution was used to reduce this initial pool to a final set of 25 items [7].

Gene context of Q-Sort

  • Security of attachment to mother was measured at 12 months with the Strange Situation Test and at 30 months with the Attachment Q-Sort [8].
