a blot on the landscape - Rorschach

I had a look at the Fin.Review for Andrew Ford's article but it's locked and for subscribers only. bah. But I did notice this excellent article on the chicanery and shonkyness of the Rorschach test is available in full text.

I have no real objection to the use of the Rorschach as a conversation starter in therapy but to utilise it as a scientific test and make statements about a person's personality or character is to start to get into the Scientology realm. Sometimes an inkblot is just an inkblot. Me I prefer The Inkspots anyday.
