2 Kinds of People
A Visual Compatibility Quiz
Paperback ISBN: 0761189491
It takes all kinds of people to make a world, the expression goes. But maybe it really takes only two kinds. People who put ketchup on their fries, and people who put the ketchup on the side. People who squeeze gently from the bottom, and people who manhandle the toothpaste tube. 2 Kinds of People is the interactive visual personality quiz that’s as much fun as a game. It works by showing two illustrations side by side. If you and your partner pick the same one, score it on the foldout wheel in the back, and move to the next. At the end, the number of matches determines where you fall on the Scale of Compatibility, ranging from mortal enemies to soul mates. There are 84 pairs in all, covering food, home, technology, travel, and more. It’s the perfect icebreaker, a clever way to find out if you and your best friend/date/coworker and/or person you just met in a bar are compatible. Cup or cone? Cash or plastic? Shower or bath? Escalator or stairs? Toilet paper over, or toilet paper under? Like they say, it’s the little things in life that really count.
Assessment Using the Rorschach Inkblot Test
1st Edition Paperback ISBN: 1433828812
The Rorschach is perhaps the most famous psychological instrument of all time, yet its purpose and utility are often misunderstood. In this introductory guide, authors James Choca and Edward Rossini demonstrate the Rorschach’s value to modern psychology as an essential clinical tool for assessing clients’ thought processes. Choca and Rossini translate their expertise into fundamental strategies for administering, scoring, and interpreting the test, as well as writing reports. They carefully examine the Rorschach’s many variables -- both individually and in combination with one another—offering possible interpretations for various scores. In addition to surveying the two primary Rorschach scoring systems -- the Comprehensive System (CS) and the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS)—the authors propose their own innovative system, the Basic Rorschach, which streamlines the assessment process by analyzing only the most clinically meaningful variables. A versatile, four-step framework bolstered by advanced interpretation strategies helps clinicians look beyond a client’s scores to more deeply understand the person behind them. The authors also propose a shorter, four-card Rorschach test that is more accessible in some situations, yet still clinically valid.
