Rorschach Inkblot Test Law and Legal Definition

Rorschach inkblot test is a personality test introduced by psychoanalyst Hermann Rorschach in 1921. Such a test consists of cards containing symmetrical ambiguous markings, or inkblots and a clinical psychologist asks an individual to explain what the individual sees in the cards. The hypothesis behind the test is that projections from the unconscious level of an individual's personality establish the ways in which a person perceives the markings.
