Hi Javier!
I had to wrap in quotes the ${folderToCheck) in line 9 (i.e. cd "${folderToCheck}"), because otherwise a path with white spaces would break the cd command. The file extensions, too, must be wrapped in quotes ("*.psd"). I also had to add -e flag to echo, see my updated gist here – I don't know if I can issue a pull request for gists :-) Thanks again!!

Uhmm... actually it passes a psb file that is corrupted... I will investigate and report back!

It turns out that a PSB which has corrupted layers, but an OK composite image will pass the identify test without the -verbose flag (that's the reason why your original code was ultra-fast compared to mine). I've added -verbose, and apparently it works, even if I don't know enough shell scripting to understand why it is able to discern whether "$result" is an OK message or an Error :-)
