Inkblot Of The Day (Monday)

I had a pretty good batch of blots last night. I am rather excited to hear about what you see. But first, more words and stuff!

"Yes, they can yield valuable insight in to a disturbed person's mind" [17 out of 24 votes (%70)]

That was from the first poll 'Do you feel that inkblots have any place in modern psychology?'
I should of left out the adjective 'disturbed.' I don't know why I threw 'modern' in there. I'm afraid I didn't learn too much from my poorly-constructed options. I was just eager to try the poll gadget out on the blog.

If you show a random person that you just met some inkblots, and they say some messed up stuff like, "blood, milk and murder," you can't exactly label them any one way, there is just not enough data. If, however, you have been having one-hour meetings once a day over several or more months with this individual, learning about their history, how they grew up, how they live from day to day, you STILL couldn't apply any sort of label to them based solely on their response to inkblots.
Point being: like Michael pointed out the other day, the blots are at best a tool on the workbench of psychology.

If you are viewing any of these blots and have this thought flash through your head, 'I should not be thinking THAT' then it is up to you to remove your tinfoil hat, stop rubbing feces on your face, and go get some fresh air.

Thanks to everyone that voted. I hope you continue to do so.

  5. At first I saw two chimps playing with each other. Then once I opened the image in a new window to see the full size I saw an owl coming at me with its mouth wide open ready to attack. The mouth being the white space in the middle, the eyes clearly above that.

    I've noticed I almost always see animals.

  6. I see a demon samurai with eyes. Huge shoulder pieces for protection. A gaze in his eyes that forfeits no emotion. A strong, silent beast.

  7. I see two mermaids riding fish, holding a futuristic gun. But the symmetry confuses the FUCK out me, to be honest. Why are these two mermaids pointing futuristic guns at each other, and why do they look exactly the same?

  8. To me this looks like a guy, looks somewhat like how you´d describe a stereotypical ghost and he is shrieking in pure terror...

  23. An ancient, calm being spreading his/her wings to embrace you into it's sterile mind... Haha

  24. I see a Phoenix in the middle, a baclk grow with a white body and short wings. I also see an alien in the white space in the middle with a look as if it will smother you or perhaps it is just a welcoming gesture. At the bottom I see a bat with black fur for nipples, and I also see a robot with a half torso with massive shoulders, and big oval shaped fists. When I look at it on a whole perspective, I see a butterfly emitting smoke from its sides.

  28. I see a silverback gorilla, centered, but that's mostly due to the very-discernible-to-me eyes above the horizontal centerline.

    And thanks for referencing me in another post. I feel so special when I come here. :)

    I wasn't lying when I said that you have one of the most interesting blogs on my reading list - I look forward to stopping by every day, because of your refreshingly-different content. That and I absolutely love Rorschach blots, regardless of their internal/external validity problems.

    Keep on posting them, and I'll keep on coming back.
