Overview of Rorschach inspection
The Rorschach test (test di Rorschach) is a test for schizophrenia, which examines what kind of figure the ink stain looks like.

And the answer and the process are greatly influenced by the reaction method that is a habit of the individual. In addition, the “hidden part” of the personality can be revealed by this test.
