Inkblot Fun



There are many kinds of psychological tests that help us understand the human psyche. Some are standardized, meaning that they have varying degrees of right and wrong answers. While others psychological tests are subjective - having NO wrong answers. These kinds of tests, instead, reveal your perception and inner life as a person.

This is not an actual Rorschach Inkblot (it's unethical to reveal them). But if you're so inclined, share what you see. I'll include my response in the comments so as to not influence yours.

The most prominent thing I see is the face of a penguin in each middle half of the inkblot.

Ami said...

Looks like angry ovaries.

;)

Deb said...

OK, this is gonna sound weird, but I see my evil reproductive system, especially that evil uterus of mine...that gives me GREAT pain.

Ugh...*shivers*

Kelly said...

I see baby monkeys.

Dr. Deb said...

Ami,
I can see that!

Deb,
No answers are wrong! Or weird. I totally see that too

Kelly,
Where do you see the baby monkeys? I'm thinking those are the features that made me think of penguins. In the middle?

Wanda's Wings said...

I see what looks like a demon.

Battle Weary said...

I see a frog in the middle.

Kelly said...

moving out from the middle, on both sides, the dark spots are their eyes and their mouths are facing towards the center

kinda at an angle, though. the white part is the head.

Big Brother said...

I see an evil clown...

~Just me again~ said...

I see a big football player squatting down, getting ready to say hut 1, 2, 3....lol or whatever they say.

MyThought said...

Reminds me of the ant or grasshopper in the movie 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids'.. *shiver*

truenorth said...

I see an alien type monster with scary eyes and teeth that look like fangs. Ugh.

Nainja said...

I also see the angry face of a demon or a grasshopper with big antlers and hind legs.

And I can't find the penguins

Xmichra said...

Kinda looks like a Mineataur skull. Bull-like, but with different, more humanoid, eyes.

or, i sorta see sphynxes on the edges, laying on sand by pools.

Dreaming again said...

I see a ballet dancer .. in full costume .. at the barre ... her legs and hand and head reflected back ..what you see as penqins are, I think, her tutu but I see the penquins too .. maybe she's dancing with a penquin

Dr. Deb said...

Hey all,

I can see everything ya'll have mentioned. Well done.

Unique said...

I see an insect, but someone has flattened it, like leaves in a book. It has two eyes, two antenna, etc - OK, who stepped on the insect?

Mz.Elle said...

I see a pelvis/reproductive organs too!

PTC said...

A scary face

mbritt said...

I see a little munchkin-type of creature. I see his eyes, a mouth with teeth and tiny little feet.

Dorin Victor Vasile said...

I can see two symmetrical baby T-rex-es.

As a heavy (Exner) Rorschach user I even don't want to think what does this mean :)

It looks like a face of a monster who looks really fierce but it's actually helpless in many situations and can't protect himself much.

Sid said...

I see a frog, a rabbit, a couple of flamingos and two people with guns that appear to be shooting out black ink.

Ian Lidster said...

People climbing out of two sides of a bathtub.

Rachel Safier said...

Is see a winged insect (maybe a butterfly) with a person on each end pulling the top edge of it downward with a rope.

Dr. Deb said...

Hey all,

Remember, it takes a lot more to understand a Rorschach response! There are no wrong answers. And I can totally see everything eveyone's mentioned.

Next inkblot will have some color in it.

Graeme said...

I see two penguins at odds with each other peeking out from behind a stand of grass

TK Kerouac said...

i see the penquins
and two women holding onto a rope

Hope said...

being an proud Albertan... and a lover of Alberta Beef... it's a straight on view of the cow i see in the field next door.

PaleMother said...

I see a mardi gras half-face mask ... some kind of clownish villan. With 3 cut out bad teeth that would fall just above the mask-wearer's upper lip.

Kahless said...

Initially I saw a mutated alien male face, but then (probably given I saw a doctor today and we talked gynae issues) I saw pelvis with bad ovaries.

mindstream said...

I see a frog and some kind of insect with antennae.

Patricia Singleton said...

I see a giant spider with a big mouth.

--Melissa said...

So I saw a pelvis. Or a crab. But what I'm curious about is what our responses say about us?

liz waters said...

I saw two hamsters dancing...which just makes me giggle because i haven't thought about hamsters in a while, but that is what popped into my head! I loved the ovaries responses. Those made me giggle totally!

Anonymous said...

I see two upside down swans two pengins and mountains two lilly pads this picture looks happy to me.

Adrienne said...
