Research Facts
The Rorschach test (also known as the Rorschach inkblot test or simply the inkblot test) is a psychological test in which the subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex scientifically derived algorithim, or both. Some psychologists use this test to examine a person's personality characteristics and emotional functioning. It has been employed to detect an underlying thought disorder, especially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly. The test takes its name from that of its creator, Swiss psychiatrist Herman Rorschach (1884 - 1922). he also wrote Psychodiagnostik which detailed his findings using inkblot testing and included a set of ten inkblot cards and first published in 1921. Details about the Exner Scoring System developed in the 1960s, and the frequent responses for the ten inkblots are in the donor file.
