inkblot tests

Jimin is doing a psychology test in the video, it’s called the ink blot test. 

An inkblot test is a personality test which involves the evaluation of a subjects response to ambiguous ink blots. This test was published in 1921 by Hermann Rorschach who was a psychiatrist from Switzerland. The interpretation of people’s responses to the Rorschach Inkblot Test was 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. Some psychologists use this test to examine a person’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning. It has been employed to detect underlying thought disorder, especially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly.[4] The test is named after its creator, Swiss psychologistHermann Rorschach.

[Percy is trying to help Tyson work through some issues via psychology. Annabeth is in the background studying and reminding Percy every few minutes that what he’s doing is not even CLOSE to psychology.]

Percy(Waving several pieces of paper): Test three! Inkblot test! Tell me what you see on this paper.

Tyson(Happily): An inkblot! I win!

Percy(Backtracking): Ah, no, no, no. What does this REMIND you of?

Tyson(Thoughtfully): A fat porcupine.

Percy: Yes, that’s good!

Annabeth(Without looking up): No.

Percy(Ignoring her and switching papers): How about this one?

Tyson: A little alien guy in a gnome cap. Percy, am I secretly a little alien guy in a gnome cap?

Percy(Sighing): Ah, no. Now what about-

[He takes out the next one, and discovers a single black dot in the middle of the page]

Percy: Ugh. Wait, hold on, this is a mistake-

Annabeth(Suddenly freezing, staring at the dot and dropping her book with a thud): THAT reminds me of my overbearing mother suffocating me with all the duties of being a worthy daughter of Athena for the rest of my life.

[There is a pause as Percy and Tyson look at her and she stares unblinking into the void]

Percy(Slowly): Well. I think we may have found the route of Annabeth’s problems- she has mother issues.

Tyson(Delighted): Yay! Annabeth has mother issues!

Percy: No, that’s bad.

Tyson(Frowning): Aw. Annabeth has mother issues.

Notes on Wings #2: Lie

1. Namjoon read “My parents’ house made up one realm,… This realm was familiar to me in almost every way - mother and father, love and strictness, model behavior, and school.”

The quote is an excerpt from Demian: The Story of Emil Sinclair’s Youth by Hermann Hesse. This is a continuation from the quote Namjoon read in Wings #1.

2. Familiar setting of a hospital/asylum

We’ve seen a similar setting in BTS’ Run mv (and Namjoon’s Joke mv). 

I’m pretty sure this is an asylum. Why?

3. The Rorschach test 

Extract from Wiki: AKA the Rorschach inkblot test, it is a psychological test in which subjects’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both. Some psychologists use this test to examine a person’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning. It has been employed to detect underlying thought disorder, especially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly.

Is this like one of those prison inkblot tests? If I say I like killin’ people are you gonna send me to jail? 

…That was a joke. Oh my God, it was a JOKE.

Okay, fine. I’ll answer.”

“What even begins with a J? Jesters? Juggling? Couldn’t you have at least picked an easier letter? What is this, AP Counseling? I didn’t study for this.  The therapists at this shit school, I swear–

Alright, I’m answerin’, I’m answerin’! Sheesh. 

I have this nice JACKET that I like. There, is that superficial enough for ya? It’s black and it’s made of leather–not real leather, what, do you think I’m made of money?–but it looks like leather and it makes me feel like a fucking b a d a s s. On days when I need to channel my inner Rihanna I’ll put it on and wear it like a bad bitch. Sometimes pretending you’re in a Bitch Better Have My Money music video can turn your whole day around. 

There. Happy?”
