The real Rorschach - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
The real Rorschach
Wow, I am REALLY glad the construction guys in my hallway went away for awhile. SO LOUD.

In other things, I was looking for some Rorschach cards to use in a Rorschach (Watchmen) wallpaper background, and I found this link to 10 actual Rorschach test cards. So I had a go at seeing what I saw in each one. Interesting. (I guess?)

My Results

1. Triumphant angels with arms around each other, in belted robes.

2. Kids playing a clapping game.

3. Curvy woman picking up a purse, reflected, or siamese cat with bow.

4. Giant scary furry monster in a barber chair , looking down (this card also reminded me the most of Rorschach's dog-head card from the comic/movie).

5. Mothman (Watchmen has influenced me), or a rabbit on its hind legs behind some bushes.

6. Angel weathervane attached to a Gothic buttress of a cathedral. Or, something weird with lots of phallic imagery. This was the only one where I immediately saw sexual organs.

7. This one took awhile to suggest anything to me. Pregnant twin sisters?

8. The prow of a ship, coming straight ahead.

9. Chinese carnival mask, or an urn surrounded by smoke.

10. The Eiffel Tower at the end of a long tree-lined avenue.

Not sure what this says about me, other than that I am not a very violent person and I had a good amount of church influence as a child. Also I saw several of them as the "reflected" images rather than one coherent image, thus the "two people" theme in a lot of them. Hrm.

Feel free to psycho-analyze my results in the comments (humorously or seriously). :)

It's because we're lawyers and our brains work the same. HEE.

Well, ok, maybe not. I just like Paris.

1. I also saw angels! They each have an arm around the other's shoulders and are waving at the viewer.

2. A surprised clown face. I hate clowns.

3. A woman looking in the mirror while leaning on a vanity.

4. Evil sorceress with billowing robes, or maybe her dark, forbidding castle.

5. Bat.

6. After some contemplation, I decided this was a dark version of the Ivory Tower.

7. Another woman looking in the mirror, this time just her bust, and her ponytail is standing straight up.

8. Reflected cat or squirrel.

9. Dragons or sea horses.

10. The Ivory Tower in the distance, with lots of flying creatures converging on it.

I looked at these and typed my answers before reading yours (except for the first one!). I love that you saw clapping kids in #2, I went back and immediately saw them too!

#1 - exactly! Clearly angels.

They are totally playing a kid game of paddy-cake or something in #2. Heh.
