The century-old test Rorschach Test, a set of ten “inkblots” originally designed to understand the connection between how people see and what they think, has had a much more illustrious—and even controversial—history. It’s been used as a diagnostic tool for schizophrenia, a general personality test, and a cultural touchstone for any event that can elicit an array of responses. In his book The Inkblots, award-winning author Damion Searls sets out to discover the deeper history behind the images and their maker, including a surprising link between the rise of abstract art and psychiatry.
