Some distracted while doing digits. Even as tester, E gets distracted. 104
Some will say "would have done better if more sleep" or "not feeling bad" etc. but have done well (I). 105
Externalizers with systems to do digits may do OK forward but fall apart backwards. 106
E likely to have bigger difference forwards and backwards than I. 107
Anxious I can do better backwards. 108
Arithmetic can spill over to digit span. 108
Big difference in low digit span and high arithmetic is indicative of defending against E, not utilizing internalized skill. 109
Indicative of organic problem: No apparent stress, but gives digits unrelated to the ones read. 110
Qualitatively the I is less disturbed by digit span. 111
E, especially Ec, often think they did well on digit span. 112
I thinks they did worse than they did. 112
Eu can tell you "I can't do it" when he thinks test unpredictable. 112
Iu no distress till Arithmetic then say "I was never any good at arithmetic.". 112
E/I behavior different when asked to note a telephone number. 113
Lookup phone number, then walk to phone: Ec write down while looking at it. Ic write down while walking to phone. Iu just walk to phone and call. Eu go to phone, then come back and write it down. 114
I relaxes as digits get longer (they realize what you are after). Ec gets more tense as it gets harder. 116
Digits forward and backwards most likely E, especially if Ec. 116
Low Arithmetic E seldom has a lot more front wards. 116
Much lower digits backwards with low arithmetic is a danger sign. 117
Related to intelligence, I performs up to intelligence on digit span. 117
Digit span in context of interpersonal administration has more influence on E than I. 117
If you give an E Digit Span again in a few minutes, he does better. 118
Can retest an I Digit Span and he thinks he did better, but did not. 118
"Anxious I" digit span down some from NL - I who is aware of need to be aware. 119
I who loses awareness over performs on digit span. 119
Very high digit span and low arithmetic is schizoid. 119
Anxiety in I bringing digit span down a bit is healthy. In E, anxiety brings digit span way down is disabling and distressing. 119
