Thematic Apperception Test is a popular method of psychology assessment which uses Projective Hypothesis Technique. It differs from the more traditional ink-blot tests in that the images used in TAT (Thematic Apperception Test) are not abstract ink-blots but representational figures that are vaguely identifiable by the viewer. These images carry a theme in them. Depending on the viewer’s identification and analysis of the sequence, a psychological map is drawn.

This tutorial is designed primarily for those who want to understand the working of a Thematic Apperception Test, and how such tests influence decision-making in organizations where there is a strong test of character involved in the selection process.

Before proceeding with this tutorial, you are expected to have some knowledge on psychoanalogy and Rorschach ink-blot testing.
