Rorschach Test

The Rorschach Inkblot Test is one of the most famous psychological projective tests in the world. Psychologists use the Rorschach to examine the personality characteristics and emotional functioning of the test taker. The test is often employed in detecting underlying thought patterns and differentiating psychotic from non-psychotic dispositions in a person’s thinking. The Rorschach is also used in forensic and custody cases, as well as to gauge a person’s general degree of adjustment to society.
