Rorschach Inkblot Test

Yesterday's Google doodle was on the Rorschach Inkblot Test.

In my child custody dispute in the family court, Commissioner Irwin Joseph sent me and my ex-wife to a psychologist to have Rorschach Inkblot Tests done. The psychologist handed me the 10 inkblots, one by one, and asked me w hat I say. He took notes and punched them into a computer program that generated a personality profile. It was about like getting a horoscope reading. It had no relevance to parenting practices. It was like voodoo.

Can't believe someone still did that.

I took undergrad psychology courses in the early 90s and it was described as useless even back then.
