Summary
Despite decades of controversy, the Rorschach test is still widely used and continues to pervade popular culture. Shouldn't we have written off this rather embarrassing vestige of early twentieth-century pseudoscience long ago, along with hypnosis, orgone boxes, and truth serum? In fact, the Rorschach test remains because it works - much better than Rorschach himself ever imagined. How and why that's the case cuts to the very heart of human personality. In this book, author Damion Searls explores this phenomenon. He tells the story of Hermann Rorschach, his ingenious experiment, and his pioneering insight into personality before going on to discuss the long and unexpected afterlife the Rorschach test has enjoyed in the last century
