    schema:reviewBody ""What's Wrong with the Rorschach? challenges the validity and utility of the inkblot test and explains why psychologists continue to judge people by their reactions to inkblots, in spite of a half century of largely negative scientific evidence against the test." "What's Wrong with the Rorschach? offers a provocative critique of one of the most widely applied and influential - and still intensely controversial - psychological tests in the world today. Surveying more than fifty years of clinical and scholarly research, the authors provide compelling scientific evidence that the Rorschach has relatively little value for diagnosing mental illness, assessing personality, predicting behavior, or uncovering sexual abuse or other trauma. In this highly engaging and colorful account of the Rorschach's origins and history, the authors detail the wealth of scientific evidence that the test is of questionable utility for real-world decision making."--Jacket." ;
