Rorschach ink blots have been around since the 1920s, and the test was used in clinical psychology. People's responses to the test may vary, depending on your culture and country. So what does the test tell you about yourself? Here's how to really understand what you see in the ink blots.
The Man Who Created The Test
The idea for the test came to Hermann Rorschach's mind while he was studying psychology and thus wanted to use the ink blots for diagnosing subjects with schizophrenia.
Go on and Get Creative
Look at the Rorschach image and try and describe what you see. If you give a new perspective on a shape, you may get some extra points for being creative. In the end, it all depends on the person examining you and on how he or she evaluates your answers. But here's how to do it all by yourself!
The first card can provide insights on how you handle new and stressful tasks. Good and common answers will be if you see a bat or woman in the middle. This means that you are nicely organized and a great multi-tasker. If you see the face of an animal or a masked person, you might be suspicious or paranoid. A bad answer is if you see an offensive or inappropriate image of a woman.
If you see a violent image or blood, it tells you how you cope with feelings of anger and physical harm. The best answer to have here is a cave opening, a pretty butterfly, or two women. In case you don't spot these, you could have problems in social situations and in relationships.
