    for the urbane coffee table, or some equally embarrassing formulation.

    Not particularly long or informative, but still some interesting things in here, including the obvious assessment that assessing personality is often asinine.

    It's not the most comprehensive or scholarly book on psychological tests, but this book might best benefit students interested in studying psychology, or be used in the classroom as a teaching tool.

If this is the case, I think many students will want to learn more about this subject and will seek out additional information. So often, psychological tests are often criticized for being discriminatory, or pointless, however, in this book, I think there is an emphasis placed on how these tests create dialogue that can be useful in a therapeutic setting. This book even allows the reader to participate in some tests, and while the results might not be life changing, I think some might be surprised with what they discover. Likewise, this could also just end up being a coffee table book. Your guests will probably stick around to read the entire thing.

    What a fun book! Educational, too. And despite the size of the book, I read it in one night.

    I was hoping for more out of this book. The goal in reading this book was to learn new things about myself, possibly even ways to view the world differently or things I could improve on. This book had nothing like that and focused only on outdated and unscientific tests. Maybe the goal of this book was to show how far we have come but since I was looking for something useful for me now, this book was a big waste of time.

    It’s neither a book for the serious psychology student nor textbook material. Instead, it’s a light-hearted way of introducing the field of psychology, it’s history and the tests conducted through time (both current and obsolete), giving you an idea that there’s more than one way to analyse men, and not all applies.

    Interesting. Might take quite a bit of time to thoroughly digest.

    The author notes that the text analysis of the Luscher Color Test uses "language similar to horoscopes". But all these different psychological evaluation methods rely on subjective interpretation--and thus they share more with horoscopes, tarot cards, philosophical texts such as the I Ching, or religious texts such as the Bible or Koran, than most people are willing to admit. What you see or hear depends on many factors that are always changing. Can they be quantified?--or is empathy, observatio The author notes that the text analysis of the Luscher Color Test uses "language similar to horoscopes". But all these different psychological evaluation methods rely on subjective interpretation--and thus they share more with horoscopes, tarot cards, philosophical texts such as the I Ching, or religious texts such as the Bible or Koran, than most people are willing to admit. What you see or hear depends on many factors that are always changing. Can they be quantified?--or is empathy, observation, and intuition just as valid at pinpointing strengths, weaknesses, and problems that need to be addressed in order to live well? Can the Shaman sometimes do more than the medical doctor? I took this book out of the library to look at the Rorschach cards, endlessly interesting and beautiful to me, and a technique I sometimes use with watercolor. But I enjoyed traveling through the wide world and history of psychological testing. I'm not sure I learned anything new about myself, but there are a lot of good writing prompts in these ambiguous psychological questions. The Abstract Art test? Just another name for Ekphrastic poetry.

    Interesting history of some psychological tests. Several fun and interesting tests. Others just bizarre.
