History of Widely Used Tests

Projective Tests use “people’s responses to ambiguous stimuli to make judgments about their adjustment/maladjustment. Proponents believe that examinees “project” themselves onto the stimuli thus revealing unconscious aspects of themselves.”¬†This part of the blog explores the history of individual tests. Popular Projective Tests include the Rorschach Test, the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), the Draw-A-Person Test, and Sentence Completion Test. There is also a section with information on other projective tests, but they are not as popular or very new and are not as frequently used.
