L‘use of psychological instruments before their full validation is never justified. The consequences can be serious in terms of psychometric credibility. The push to use a new Rorschach acronym system, the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS; Meyer, Viglione, Mihura, Erard and Erdberg, 2011), deserves to be examined from this perspective.
