Reading Comprehension: Inference Questions

The author suggests that, unlike respondents of objective tests, respondents of projective tests

Very good!


Since we know that respondents cannot control the results of projective tests but respondents of objective tests can, we know that people may falsify the results of an objective test (which is also explicitly stated in the second sentence of the second paragraph) and infer that respondents of projective tests cannot.



this answer choice goes beyond what is stated in the text. Although the stimuli presented by projective tests are ambiguous (which means that they may be interpreted in several ways), we have no information to suggest that the questions themselves are difficult to interpret or confusing in any way.



Projective tests are set up in a fashion so that the respondent does not know what he or she is revealing, as he or she does so unknowingly. The fact that a respondent can also choose to reveal secrets about his or her personality is logical, but cannot be inferred from anything in the passage 



The passage states that projective tests do not have the constraints in their structure that objective tests have. This does not mean that the respondents are aware of these restrictions or feel constrained by either type of test.



Our Initial Reading reveals that the author does not think that the results of projective tests are more reliable than those of objective tests. She or he cites projective tests' problematic nature, due to the interpretations that must be done by human scorers.

cannot intentionally falsify the results of the tests
are often confused by the test questions
choose to reveal secrets about their personality
do not feel constrained by the tests
are more satisfied with the interpretation of their test results, since the results are more accurate
