THE HOMAGE TO RORSCHACH'S

INKBLOT TEST (Session Collection)

is designed to help the wearer accurately

assess various personality traits of people

that they might encounter on a day to day

basis. These encounters could be with per-

fect strangers, relatives, friends, politicians

and primates.



By following these easy steps, you will be

able to conclude that everyone that you

have come into contact with, are all a bit

'off the wall'.



STEP 1: OBTAIN A RESPONSE

The wearer is asked to obtain a response

from a candidate about the design on the

t-shirt. Take Note: Responses in any way

similar to "It's a piece of crap", allows the

wearer to skip straight to Step 3.



STEP 2: INTERPRET THE RESPONSE

1. If the candidate responds to the design

as a whole, it could be concluded that they

are able to deal with relationships in

meaningful ways. Milk this aspect of their

personality for your own benefit.



2. A response to minor details could

indicate obsessive compulsive tendencies,

which is a defense mechanism protecting

them from having to cope with larger

issues in their life. Point this out to them,

it will drive them up the wall.



3. A response to negative (white) space

could be interpreted as the candidate's

inclination to see things in their own way,

it could be a manifestation of negativism

and stubbornness. Do not in any way

aggravate these candidates.



4. If the candidate sees colour, but is pre-

dominantly guided by the form of the ink-

blot, they are believed to be capable of

feeling deeply, but also of holding back

their feelings. Take Note: These candidates

are walking time-bombs and should be app-

roached carefully.



STEP 3: DRAW CONCLUSIONS

Decide whether you would like to pro-

ceed with having any further contact with

the candidate.



ADDITIONAL INTERPRETATIONS

If the candidate sees red as symbolising

blood, their impulses are unmanageable.

Normally attributed to Vampires.



If the candidate is confused about seeing

male or female elements in the inkblot,

they might be in conflict over their own

gender. Do not, under any circumstances,

point this out to the candidate.



If the candidate sees movement, it could

be concluded that they are intelligent

and creative. After 1000 responses, it

appears that everyone is creative.



If the candidate sees animals, but no

people, they may have problems relating

to people. Normally attributed to politicians.

Really like this one, especially the way the design wraps around the ribcage. 5 and I would buy it.

skipcronin

agree with skipcronnin, just because they're fairly repetitious.

Bravo! This is the only Rorshach image that has gone from puke on paper to elegant beauty. Neat placement, too!

AWESOME!

Great for a shirt design, aesthetically pleasing, and also practical in that you can test whoever comes your way. personally I am the candidate in the fourth scenario. the walking time-bomb. I would def buy this WHEN threadless prints it.

Did you see the Gnarles Barkley video and decide to do this?

shazz_25

I SAW GOATSE TOO
The internet has ruined us all. :(

hey wow lets be pretentious.
way to leave a ridiculously long
explanation of something we ALL get.

btw everyone can do this in photoshop,
hell even MS Paint in about 1.4 seconds.

and finally, that placement would never even get accepted by threadless.

A-perfect-circle

even tho or if ( idunno) someone could do it in paint its still pretty sick 5

Did you read what the author said? It's funny. Not just an explanation. At first I thought the same thing "why oh why is there so much writing." Then I read it, and laughed. And everyone COULD do it, but this artist did, so he gets props. 4 for you.

Gorgeous design, and I love, love the psychological reference. Even if Threadless needs to adjust the size, so it doesn't extend over the seams, I believe it would still make an excellent shirt. I would love to wear this.

marmalade_skies

i love this.
i also loved your explanation..:]
$5. this better be printed!

jinxthejinx

yeah, all i see is penis.

just kidding.
