Usually he felt sex "made him unhappy."
After he made love to her, "he got drunk."
My sexual desires "are very low."

He appears to have little insight into the extent of his underlying resentment and hostility; nor does be appear to fully recognize the relationship of these feelings to both his unresolved guilt feelings over mother's death three years ago, nor to the resentment that underlies his guilt feelings. Thomas' guilt is clearly conveyed in the following SCT response: I feel guilty about "death", and the following TAT story:




...a lady, crying, depressed, unhappy. Maybe someone
died in the family. Close relatives, someone she's quite close
to. In some way she feels guilty."
That the figure, whose sex on the card is ambiguous, is identified as a woman, would suggest psychosexual confusion, based on an identification with mother, in addition to the conflicted feelings of anger and guilt.

Thomas' anger is apparently readily released in relation to women:

When she reused him, he "slapped her."
A man would be justified in beating a woman who "did not do as he said."


The extent of this anger is evident in the frequent Rorschach responses of "Crab" (Cards I, VII, IX, X), a response which has been related to underlying resentment and hostility, as well as to the possibility of an internalized rejecting and punitive mother figure. This possibility is reinforced by the Rorschach response "Beetle... two big eyes with little pinchers" (Card VI) in an area commonly associated to a vagina; and the response "Crab" (Card VII) to a card commonly related to the mother, as well as by the SCT response: As a child my greatest fear was "mother."

Dr. Gramont has presented a series of objective findings which, especially in light of speculation surrounding Tommy's involvement in the murder of Martha Moxley, are somewhat alarming. While Dr. Gramont by no means suggests Tommy is a raging monster on the verge of violent episodes, the diagnosis is still very telling. At the very least, it presents a great deal of insight into possible emotional and psychological disabilities that could have contributed to destructive behavior, and from which Tommy may still suffer to this day. Such destructive behavior may not even be something for which Tommy, in the eyes of the law, should be held entirely accountable. It seems odd, then how little attention Dr. Lesse paid to Dr. Gramont's findings. The following is the sum of his reporting with regards to Dr. Gramont's testing:
