a personality test which involves the evaluation of a subjects response
to ambiguous ink blots. This personality test was published in 1921 by
originally based on psychoanalytical theory but investigators have used it in
an empirical fashion. When this test is used empirically, the quality of the
responses is related to the measurements of personality.
Throughout the 1940s and 1950s the ink blot test was popular among clinical psychologists but quickly lost popularity as critics claimed it to be too subjective. Variations of the ink blot test have since been developed such as the Holtzman Inkblot Test and the Somatic Inkblot Series.
"A great change of our psychological attitude is imminent, that IS certain, because we need more psychology, we need more understanding of HUMAN NATURE, because the ONLY REAL DANGER that exists is MAN HIMSELF. He IS the Great Danger and we are pitifully unaware of it. We know nothing of MAN, far too little. His psyche should be studied because WE ARE the origin of ALL evil coming. If you think along the lines of NATURE, then you think properly."

FACE to FACE with Jung - BBC interview 1959 and I was 13 years old.
Filmed in Switzerland at his lakeside home near Zurich, Professor Carl Gustav Jung was viewed as the greatest living psychologist. Interviewer John Freeman found Jung, although an old man, as sharp and clear thinking as ever. It proved to be a timely encounter; Jung died 18 months later. (1959)

Leonardo da Vinci wrote in his Notebooks: "It should not be hard for you to
stop sometimes & look into the stains of walls, or ashes of a fire, or cloud,
of A NEW MODEL of the UNIVERSE ... "In the figure produced by the ink
spread on a sheet of paper folded in two, the symmetry of all the points
was obtained because the points on one side of the fold came into contact
with the points on the other side. To each point on one side there
corresponded a point on the other side and, when the paper was folded,
these points touched one another. From the third rule formulated above it
must follow that between the opposite points of a four-dimensional
body there exists some relation, some affinity, which we have not
hitherto noticed. To each point there corresponds, as it were, one or
several others linked with it in some way unintelligible to us. That is, this
point is unable to move independently; its movement is connected with
the movement of other corresponding points which occupy positions
analogous to its own in the expanding and contracting body. These points
are precisely the points opposite to it. It is, as it were, linked with them,
linked in the fourth dimension. An expanding body appears to be folded in
different ways and this establishes a certain strange connection between its
