Rorschach Test: Card I
Hermann Rorschach devised the Rorschach Ink Blot Method in 1921 as a way to diagnose schizophrenia. This method was used as a psychological test in which the subject's perceptions of a set of standardized inkblots were recorded and analyzed at length. While not his original intention, this test came to be used to examine personality characteristics and emotional functioning.
Card I, being the first card presented to the subject, is of particular importance. The image itself is easy to interpret, with a wide array of possible answers such as butterfly, bat, or moth. What is examined, instead, is the subject's response to the stress of beginning the test.
