Group differences on Rorschach variables, for example, do not reflect the accuracy of predictions made with a particular cutoff score. Even when a research finding focuses on individual prediction rather than on group correlates, a statistically significant relationship does not necessarily indicate a good predictor. The value of a variable as a predictor of deception is determined by its effect size, not by its statistical significance (Cohen, 1977). Since the significance of a statistical relationship is determined in part by the sample size of the study, it is possible for a weak relationship (small effect size) to attain statistical significance.
