Is it a skeleton, or a crab? And if you could, which musical instrumental would you be? Many of us are fascinated by Rorschach tests and word association games, but are they deeply revealing about our personalities—or just utter nonsense? Providing a history of the soft science of psychological testing, this heavily illustrated book also offers a battery of such puzzles, including inkblots, the Szondi Test, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, and a range of visual and textual tests that have been used—for better or worse—to gauge people's outlook, creativity, perceptiveness, anger level, personality type, and sexual preferences.
