In brief: Rorschach Assessment

Responses to the 10 images give a picture of one's approach to people, situations & life in general.
Various systems of interpretation exist, notably by rappaport, klopfer, hertz, piotrowski & beck. Many thought the technique too subjective until john exner developed an empirically based "comprehensive system, " validated via research. It is indeed used in real life psychological assessment.
