The Rorschach test is a psychological test in which subjects’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithmsor both. Some psychologists use this test to examine a person’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning.
Rorschach test – Wikipedia
It has been employed to detect underlying thought disorderespecially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly. In the s, the Rorschach was the most widely used projective test.
Although the Exner Scoring System developed since the s claims to have addressed and often refuted many criticisms of the original testing system with an extensive body of research,  some researchers continue to raise questions.
The areas of dispute include the objectivity of testers, inter-rater reliabilitythe verifiability and general validity of the test, bias of the test’s pathology scales towards greater numbers of responses, the limited number of psychological conditions which it accurately diagnoses, the inability to replicate the test’s norms, its use in court-ordered evaluations, and the proliferation of the ten inkblot imagespotentially invalidating the test for those who have been exposed to them.
Using interpretation of “ambiguous designs” to assess an individual’s personality is an idea that goes back to Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli. Interpretation of inkblots was central to a game, Gobolinks from the late 19th century. Rorschach’s, however, was the first systematic approach of this kind. It has been suggested that Rorschach’s use of inkblots may have been inspired by German doctor Justinus Kerner who, inhad published a popular book of poems, each of which was inspired by an accidental inkblot.
After studying mental patients and control subjects, in Rorschach wrote his book Psychodiagnostikwhich was to form the basis of the inkblot test after experimenting with several hundred inkblots, he selected a set of ten for their diagnostic value but he died the following year.
Although he had served as Vice President of the Swiss Psychoanalytic Society, Rorschach had difficulty in publishing the book and it attracted little attention when it first appeared. Inthe newly founded Hans Huber publishing house purchased Rorschach’s book Psychodiagnostik from the inventory of Ernst Bircher. After Rorschach’s death, the original test scoring system was improved by Samuel Beck, Bruno Klopfer and others.
Exner summarized some of these later developments in the comprehensive systemat the same time trying to make the scoring more statistically rigorous.
Some systems are based on the psychoanalytic concept of object relations. The Exner system remains very popular in the United Stateswhile in Europe other methods sometimes dominate,   such as that described in the textbook by Evald Bohm rorscyach, which is closer to the original Rorschach system and rooted more deeply in the original psychoanalysis principles.
Rorschach never intended the inkblots to be used as a general personality test, but developed them as a tool for the diagnosis of schizophrenia. It was not until that the test was used as a projective test of personality, a use of which Rorschach had always been skeptical.
The Rorschach test is appropriate for subjects from the age of five to adulthood. The administrator and rorscnach typically sit next to each other at a table, with the administrator slightly behind the subject.
Side-by-side seating of the examiner and the subject is used to reduce any effects of inadvertent cues from the examiner to the subject. In other words, side-by-side rorschacu mitigates the possibility that the examiner will accidentally influence the subject’s responses. Five inkblots are of black ink, two are of black and red ink and three are multicolored, on a white background. The subject is usually asked to hold the cards and may rotate them. Whether the cards are rotated, and other related factors such as whether permission to rotate them is asked, may expose personality traits and normally contributes to the assessment.
Analysis of responses is recorded by the test administrator using a tabulation and scoring sheet and, if required, a separate location chart. The underlying assumption is that an individual will class external stimuli based on person-specific perceptual sets, and including needsbase motivesconflictsand that this clustering process is representative of the process used in real-life situations.
Rorschach scoring dw have been described as eorschach system of pegs on which amnual hang one’s knowledge of personality.
Administration of the test to a group of subjects, by means of projected images, has also occasionally been performed, but mainly for research rather than diagnostic purposes. The interpretation of a Rorschach record is a complex process. It requires a wealth of knowledge concerning personality dynamics generally as well as considerable experience with the Rorschach method specifically.
Proficiency as a Rorschach administrator can be gained within a few months. However, even those who are able and qualified to become Rorschach interpreters usually remain in a “learning stage” for a number of years. The interpretation of the Rorschach test is not based primarily on the contents of the response, i. In fact, the contents of the response are only a comparatively small portion of a broader cluster of variables that are used to interpret the Rorschach data: In particular, information about determinants the aspects of the inkblots that triggered the response, such as form and color and location which details of the inkblots triggered the response is often considered more important than content, although there is contrasting evidence.
The goal in coding content of the Rorschach is to categorize the objects that the subject describes in response to the inkblot. There are 27 established codes for identifying the name of the descriptive object. The codes are classified and include terms such as “human”, “nature”, “animal”, “abstract”, “clothing”, “fire”, and “x-ray”, to name a few.
Content described that does not have a code already established should be coded using the code “idiographic contents” with the shorthand code being “Idio. More than any other feature in the test, content response can be controlled consciously by the subject, and may be elicited by very disparate factors, which makes it difficult to use content alone to draw any conclusions about the subject’s personality; with certain individuals, content responses may potentially be interpreted directly, and some information can at times be obtained by analyzing thematic trends in the whole set of content responses which is only feasible when several responses are availablebut in general content cannot be analyzed outside of the context of the entire test record.
Identifying the location of the subject’s response is another element scored in the Rorschach system. Location refers to how much of the inkblot was used to answer the question. Administrators score the response “W” if the whole inkblot was used to answer the question, “D” if a commonly described part of the blot was used, “Dd” if an uncommonly described or unusual detail was used, or “S” if the white space in the background was used.
A score of W is typically associated with the subject’s motivation to interact with his or her surrounding environment. D is interpreted as one having efficient or adequate functioning. A high frequency of responses coded Dd indicate some maladjustment within the individual. Responses coded S indicate an oppositional or uncooperative test subject. Systems for Rorschach scoring generally include a concept of “determinants”: These are the factors that contribute to establishing the similarity between the inkblot and the subject’s content response about it.
They can also represent certain basic experiential-perceptual attitudes, showing aspects of the way a subject perceives the world. Rorschach’s original work used only formcolor and movement as determinants.
However currently, another major determinant considered is shading which was inadvertently introduced by poor printing quality of the inkblots. Rorschach initially disregarded shading,  since the inkblots originally featured uniform saturation, but later recognized it as a significant factor.
Form is the most common determinant, and is related to intellectual processes. Color responses often provide direct insight into one’s emotional life.
Movement and shading have been considered more ambiguously, both in definition and interpretation.
Rorschach considered movement only as the experiencing of actual motion, while others have rorscbach the scope of this determinant, taking it to mean that the subject sees something “going on”. More than one determinant can contribute to the formation of the subject’s perception. Fusion of two determinants is taken into account, while also assessing which of the two constituted the primary contributor.
For example, ” form – color ” implies a more refined control of impulse than ” color – form “. It is, indeed, from the relation and balance among determinants that personality can be most readily inferred. A striking characteristic of the Rorschach inkblots is their symmetry. Many unquestionably accept this aspect of the nature of the images but Rorschach, as well as other researchers, certainly did not.
Rorschach experimented with both asymmetric and symmetric images before finally opting for the latter. Rorschxch figures are rejected by many subjects; symmetry supplied part of the necessary artistic composition. It has a disadvantage in that it tends to make answers somewhat stereotyped.
On the other hand, symmetry makes conditions the same for right and left handed subjects; furthermore, it facilitates interpretation for certain blocked subjects. Finally, symmetry makes possible the interpretation of whole scenes. The impact of symmetry in the Rorschach inkblot’s has also been investigated further by other researchers.
It was developed in the s by Dr. Exneras a more rigorous system of analysis. It has been extensively validated and shows high inter-rater reliability. He later published a study in multiple volumes called The Rorschach: A Comprehensive systemthe most accepted full description of his system.
Creation of the new system was prompted by the realization that at least five related, but ultimately different methods were in common use at the time, with a sizeable minority of examiners not employing any recognized method at all, basing instead their judgment on subjective assessment, or arbitrarily mixing characteristics of the various standardized systems. The key components of the Exner system are the clusterization of Rorschach variables and a sequential search strategy to determine the order in which to analyze them,  framed in the context of standardized administration, objective, reliable coding and a representative normative database.
In the system, responses are scored with reference to their level of vagueness or synthesis of multiple images in the blot, the location of the response, which of a variety of determinants is used to produce the response i. It has been reported that popular responses on the first card include bat, badge and coat of arms. Using the scores for these categories, the examiner then performs a series of calculations producing a structural summary of the test data.
The results of the structural summary are interpreted using existing research data on personality characteristics that have been demonstrated to be associated with different kinds of responses.
With the Rorschach plates the ten inkblotsthe area of each blot which is distinguished by the client is noted and coded—typically as “commonly selected” or “uncommonly selected”. There were many different methods for coding the areas of the blots. Exner settled upon the area coding system promoted by S. Beck and This system was in turn based upon Klopfer’s work.
As pertains to response form, a concept of “form quality” was present from the earliest exnner Rorschach’s works, as a subjective judgment of how well the form of the subject’s response matched the inkblots Rorschach would give a higher form score to more “original” yet good form responsesand this concept was followed by other methods, especially in Europe; in contrast, the Exner system solely defines “good form” as a matter of word occurrence frequency, reducing xe to a measure of the subject’s distance to the population average.
They believed that the Exner scoring system was in need of an update, but after Exner’s death, the Exner family forbade any changes to be df to the Comprehensive System. It maanual an attempt at creating a current, empirically based, rorshach internationally focused scoring system that is easier to use than Exner’s Comprehensive System.
The manual consists of two chapters that are basics of scoring and interpretation, aimed for use for novice Rorschach users, followed by numerous chapters containing more detailed and technical information. In terms of updated scoring, the authors only selected variables that have been empirically supported in the literature. To note, the authors did not create new variables or indices to be coded, but systematically reviewed variables that had been used in past systems.
Scoring of the indices has been updated e. In addition to providing coding guidelines to score examinee responses, the R-PAS provides a system to code an examinee’s behavior during Rorschach administration. These rorsvhach codes are included as it is believed that the behaviors exhibited during testing are a reflection of someone’s task performance and supplements the actual responses given.
5a. The Ten Rorschach Cards
This allows generalizations to be made between someone’s responses to the cards and their actual behavior. Comparing North American Exner normative data with data from European and South American subjects showed marked exne in some features, some of which impact important variables, while others such as the average number of responses coincide.
The differences in form quality are attributable to purely cultural aspects:
