Rorschach test sparks controversy

Have you ever taken a Rorschach test? Personally i never knew one even existed and even if i did i wouldn't know the first thing about it. That is until i read the latest news about it. Wikipedia defines The Rorschach test as a method of psychological evaluation in which subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed using, depending on the psychologist, intuitive insight, complex scientifically derived algorithm's or both. Apparently these test are issued on the famous t.v. show "Law & Order" to catch the bad guys. Good for them. They say there is no right or wrong answer. How could there be? When i first looked at the inkblots i mistook them for a man eating monster on paper. Recently there's been a lot of uproar over a emergency room doctor who posted all 10 inkblots and the most common interpretations of those 10 inkblots. Would like to know the 10 best answers but again as i said, there's no right or wrong answer. Based on your interpretations to these inkblots will show how you truly feel and your inner most feelings. Geez! You think they could come up with something a little better than this. Well, what do think about this?

I know they use these a lot when they are doing psych evaluations on pedophiles and sex crimes.

When your blog opened my first thought was an animal skull.

It looks like an alien to me with the white eyeballs in the center. LOL If there is no right or wrong answer to these then I wonder why the bother using them?
