What am I looking at?

rorschach.jpgRemember those strange pictures that a doctor would ask you to look at and say what you saw? I don’t know if NASA still uses them (at least that’s what they say in the movies), but despite these tests having no valid scientific basis, they are still part of the collective consciousness. Hermann Rorschach, the Swiss father of the controversial inkblots, is the subject of a unique exhibition at the University Library, Bern, offering an insight into the psychiatrist’s life and work as well as an influential chapter in the history of psychology. While other scientists had previously dabbled with inkblots, Rorschach was the first to use them to develop theories on people’s tendency to project interpretations onto ambiguous stimuli… However his theories were debunked later on.
