Using the Rorschach Psychodiagnostic Test, this study examines self-perception in Andean Quechua-speaking children beginning their education in Spanish. A comparative analysis was made between 30 Quechua-speaking children from a community in the Peruvian Andes and 30 Spanish-speaking children from the Lima, Peru, all 6 and 7 years old. Student's t-test and Z-test statistical analyses were used to compare data. Results show significant differences in self-concept (self-perception) for morbid content (MOR) between groups as well as for structural variables included in the Rorschach analysis. Quantitative data also illustrate the disparity between both groups and age-related norms published by Exner. Different aspects of validity for the Rorschach test are discussed as well as educational issues, considering this culturally heterogeneous population that has rarely been studied or made itself accessible to evaluation.
