The Rorschack Test (Ink Blots)

I always wanted to take the Rorschack test. It's the ink blot thing. I think alot of people would. The other day I was at a thrift store checking out the books and I found one that explains the Rorshack. I have have been intrested in psychology since high school (I wanted to fix me)and have a few books on the subject.
Knowing only that you describe what you see in the ink blots I thought the test was open to interpitation by the adminestrator. That is not the case. I was blown away by how much can be acurately asscess about a person.
After you go through the blots ( which may have color in some) the administer will go back and ask you what made you say "thats a flower". If you say it's because it's red, and those look like pedals, that is a CF for chromatic and form. It doesn't mater that you said "flower" it's that you looked at color and form. If on another blot you anwered that the grey area made it look like ? they are looking at the fact that you focused on ink saturation variations.
If I were a shrink I wouldn't bother with all that. If my patient was a woman, I'd ask to look in her purse. If a man, never mind I wouldn't have any male clients.

Not long after my divorce 15 years ago, I dated a therapist. When I first started dating him, he thought it would be fun to have me take those tests. I took every test that he had..thought it was fun, actually. I was off the charts with the creative side of my brain so he said and he never really did explain how they worked to me.

I don't think I really cared...I, like you, had always been curious about them though


Just a little food for thought.............
