  2. A psychological assessment device employing a set of standard but vague stimuli on the assumption that unstructured material will allow unconscious motivations and fears to be uncovered. The Rorschach series of inkblots is an example.
  3. A projective test consisting of a set of black-and-white pictures reproduced on cards, each depicting a potentially emotion-laden situation. The examinee, presented with the cards one at a time, is instructed to make up a story about each situation.

5 True/False questions

  1. Alternate-Form ReliabilityThe relationship between the judgements that at least two raters make independently about a phenomenon.


  2. PsychophysiologyThe discipline concerned with the bodily changes that accompany psychological events.


  3. Projective HypothesisThe notion that highly unstructured stimuli, as in the Rorschach inkblot test, are necessary to bypass defences in order to reveal unconscious motives and conflicts.


  4. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)A technique for measuring the structure (or, in the case of functional magnetic resonance imaging, the activity) of the living brain. The person is placed inside a large circular magnet that causes hydrogen atoms to move; the return of the atoms to their original positions when the current to the magnet is turned off is translated by a computer into pictures of brain tissue.


  5. StandardizationThe extent to which a test, measurement, or classification system produces the same scientific observation each time it is applied.
