The ego functions of reality: Judgment, Adaptation and Reality, are relevant for the differential diagnosis and pathology distinction. The aim of this work is to make a approach to the analysis of the graphic indicators in the Draw a Person in the Rain Test (D.A.P.R) which would allow the specialist to assess The ego functions of reality (Test, Adaptation and Judgment), and check whether D.A.P.R. can be a useful tool for the differential diagnosis. The instruments used in this work are: The Scale for the Assessment of Reality Testing of the Rorschach Test and PBLL Test. The sample consists of about 45 participants between 15 and 57 years old, all residing in the City of Buenos Aires and Great Buenos Aires. There were two groups formed according to their ego function variabilities and their score in the Scale for the Assessment of Reality Testing. The analysis of the indicators allows the specialist to hypothesize that the D.A.P.R. test can be a useful tool for the analysis of these functions.
