Israel vs. Hamas - Your Rorshach Test
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Hermann Rorschach created the Rorschach inkblot test in 1921.
The Rorschach inkblot test (pronounced IPA: ['ʁoɐʃax]) is a method of psychological evaluation. Psychologists use this test to try to examine the personality characteristics and emotional functioning of their patients. The Rorschach is currently the second most commonly used test in forensic assessment, after the MMPI, and is the second most widely used test by members of the Society for Personality Assessment. It has been employed in diagnosing underlying thought disorder and differentiating psychotic from nonpsychotic thinking in cases where the patient is reluctant to openly admit to psychotic thinking.
