Goren vs. Rorschach

Rorschach Inkblot Test created by Hermann Rorschach in 1921, is a method of psychological evaluation, most commonly used in forensic/clinical assessment along with MMPI and CPI. While MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) and CPI (California Personality Inventory) are both projective tests, Rorschach is a non projective test which is designed to let a person respond to ambiguous stimuli, presumably revealing hidden emotions and internal conflicts. And it's only used by trained professionals to assist in identifying personality structure and psychopathology. Only few psychologists/psychiatrists believe in it as an efficient diagnostic tool but majority still question the validity and the reliability of RIM. Furthermore prior to perform properly, the therapists functioning in the psychoanalysis field usually apply RIM on themselves. I took the test once as a midterm project and I found out that my mental capacity was swinging from Borderline to Bipolar! No, just kidding:) As they say; to be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost. Well, I feel healthy and consequently happy which begs the question. So am I?! Whatever:) As we all know, Robert Goren's shoe size is 13. We find out this 'vital' information in the episode Jones (S01E05) in an amusing way. No, I'm not gonna talk about the mythical correlation between a man's shoe size and the size of his brain:) Instead I'm adding here a Youtube video that might be helpful.
