In 1917, working alone in a remote Swiss asylum, psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach devised an experiment to probe the human mind. His test, a set of ten carefully designed inkblots, quickly made its way to America, where it took on a life of its own, becoming an advertising staple, a cliché in Hollywood and journalism, and an inspiration to everyone from Andy Warhol to Jay-Z. And it is still used today. Discover the unlikely story of the test’s creation, its controversial reinvention, and what it reveals about the power of perception in THE INKBLOTS: HERMANN RORSCHACH, HIS ICONIC TEST, AND THE POWER OF SEEING by Damion Searls. #ShelfLife #bookstagram #damionsearls #theinkblots #rorschach #rorschachtest #librariesofinstagram
