    It wasn't too long ago that I almost exclusively read only fiction, and as a new steady reader of the genre, I can be hard to please. While anything but a well researched book won't do, I loathe the stuffiness of a book that seems more like a text book. The Inkblots: Hermann Rorschach, His Iconic Te...

I've however never taken one, and I hold a degree in neither psychiatry nor psychology. But I'm a scientist, so the parts where Rorschach...

    Interesting, sometimes even fascinating dual biographies about Dr. Hermann Rorschach, Swiss psychiatrist and developer of the eponymous inkblot test and also about the test itself: its creation and later trajectory [after his early death at 37] at how the "experiment" has been used and misused until...

The first half of this book is a biography of Hermann Rorschach a Swiss psychiatrist who developed the "Rorschach test" that utilizes a standardized set of inkblots for psychoanalytical purposes. Just as his test was beginning to come to the attention of ot...
