– After all 10 cards are done, the examiners goes over every response to ask them what features of the blot game them that particular impression

b. Thematic Apperception Test (TAT)

– Developed at Harvard University by Henry Murray in 1930’s
– Less ambiguous than Rorschach as it consists of actual scenes on 20 cards
