n. A component of body image in which there may be definite or indefinite boundaries set by personality. For instance, a person can be tested as to barrier responses - with the shell, cover, or skin being part of that body armor. See Holtzman Inkblot Test- also Rorschach Inkblot Test.

BODY BOUNDARIES: "There are areas of a psychological test which assess the concept of body boundaries, because these too are part of personality formation."
