A semiprojective test (BASE) combining principles of both projective tests and personality questionnaires was developed for the estimation of search activity, renunciation of search, stereotyped behavior and chaotic behavior. A pilot study with three groups of high school students was performed, using BASE and the questionnaire CASQ which evaluates the level of optimism. Group I contained 60 new immigrants with high social adjustment, Group II contained 57 new immigrants with low social adjustment, and a Control group contained 48 students of a Moscow school. Attitude toward search acitivity predominated in group I and was the lowest in group II, while renunciation of search was the lowest in group II, while renunciation of search was the most noticeable in group II and the lowest in group I. BASE discriminated both groups better than CASQ.
