Thematic Apperception Test, United Kingdom, 1960-1990
Do you see a burglar escaping or a man opening the window to a bright new day? The person taking this Thematic Apperception Test studies pictures and invents a story about each one. Each picture is deliberately ambiguous. Psychologists Christiana Morgan and Henry Murray devised the test in 1935. It has been described as a method for stimulating, recording and analysing fantasy. It was used by the Institute of Education, University of Liverpool, between 1960 and 1990.
