The Rorschach Inkblot Test is an iconic, well-known assessment tool consisting of 10 random patterns intended to elicit an interpretive response from the client. Many instruments assess for personality and intelligence, but no other tool measures a person's energy level, emotional control, and thought processes. For this reason, the Rorschach has been used for decades in clinical settings for such purposes as evaluating improvement, informing treatment direction, and for a better general understanding of the client.

In this video, James P. Choca provides a brief overview of the Rorschach and demonstrates administration of the instrument. In an interview with host Kathleen Bechtold, Dr. Choca uses illustrative examples from the demonstration to discuss the art of interpreting responses and other key elements for the best use of this instrument.

The Rorschach is a superb clinical instrument that may require a long time to learn, administer, score, and interpret. Those time demands, and the negative attitudes that have arisen about this test, have resulted in a decrease of the number of programs that train graduate students with the Rorschach, and a decrease in the Rorschach use in clinical settings. Adjustments are needed if the test is going to thrive in the 21st Century. Recently, Dr. Choca has argued for a reduction in the number of cards administered, for a reduction in the number of variables scored, and for a more interactive and less constrained administration.
