Rorschach Ink Blot Test: Projective Psychology

Lately, there has been a spate of films geared towards pop-psychology concepts. A recent one that springs to mind is The Master by Paul Thomas Anderson, so I thought it might be fun to include the test here.

The Rorschach Test is a form of projective test in which perceptions of inkblots are recorded; then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both. Naturally, the test’s reliability and accuracy are disputable within the mental science community (as with most psychological theories), but nonetheless it could be worthwhile or fun to give it try.



  1. Look at the cards individually, and in sequence (take your time).
  2. If need be, mouse over and click for enlarged views.
  3. When you’ve decided on what the image depicts, click on “Answer” to reveal the psychological associations.
  4. There are two ways to view card answers…
    • A) In enlarged view, answers are located at the bottom left corner of every page — this method is designed for you to undergo the test under a sequential, and more controlled setting [so as to avoid contaminating your response].
    • B) Follow the link to open a separate page containing all the answers: ANSWERS

Have fun.

    • The font itself is Arial (if I recall correctly). As for where the “fonts came from” I believe Arial is a variant of of the sans-serif typeface family.


  1. Hey! Thanks for posting this i really enjoyed it
    There is one card that I didn’t find an answer to it
    In number 10 i see two queen guards holding cheerleaders puffs “I don’t know what it called” with both of their hands
    And in number 4 my sister sees it as two boots
    And in number 9 she sees a pelvis
    “Sorry for my bad english”
