Hermann Rorschach's 129th Birthday

More Doodles

Nov 8, 2013

Today we celebrate the 129th birthday of Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach who created the iconic inkblot test. Subjects are presented a pattern and asked to give their interpretation. Interpretations can aid in the examination of a person's personality and emotions.

I took the test; here are my responses:

I see a travel pillow.

I see a space invader. A sad space invader, he wants to move back to Los Angeles because everyone he loves is there.

I see an angry large bear clenching his teeth. He ate too many berries and is having a bad day.

I see a shape dynamically generated with Perlin Noise, mirrored, and overlaid on an inkblot texture using additive blending.

Thanks to Corrie Scalisi for engineering support.
