Inkblot Of The Day (Tuesday)

  As usual, or what is becoming usual, some of the interpretations from yesterday were pretty nutty.  There were a few mentions of various animals on yesterday's blot, so I picked the gorilla to highlight.

 Beleive me, if I could draw, I would of done the mermaid riding fish with weapons.

  FACTOID:
  In 1918, Hermann Rorschach had his method down, and was really burning the midnight oil. He had 40 inkblots, but had a preference for a certain 15 that he had been using from earlier experiments.  He tested 305 people and then went to publish his findings (including his 15 blots) but found that the publishers were not interested.  Those bastards.
  When he did find one willing to print (5 years later!) they insisted on only using 10 of the 15.  I imagine ol' Hermz was disappointed because the blots had been altered in size, the saturation was all off, and other variables messed with in the final print that he felt were important to his method.
  The 10 blots from that publication are the ones currently being used and known as the Rorschach test.

  Here is a blot that was halfway in to the trashcan (quite a few end up there) before I thought, "Why not just let them have a go?"

  17. The bottom-most subject seems to be some sort of plated armor to me, that "head" portion strikes me as Stormtrooper-esqe, but hey, subjectivity is the whole point of this exercise ain't it!?
