The Ink Blot Test measures both perception and association. It will provide you with insight into your personality characteristics and emotional functioning.
During the test you will be shown a series of ink blot images and then asked what you think they resemble.
Based on your responses, the App will calculate over 27 indices and ratios which are then used to provide a detailed diagnosis (over 1800 words) in 7 key areas. These are:
1. Stress (i.e. if you are stressed and how you handle it);
2. Emotional State & Coping Style (Affect);
3. Information Processing & Aspirations;
4. Cognitive Mediation & Reality Testing;
5. Thinking Process (Ideation) & Obsessiveness;
6. Self Perception; and
Once the evaluation is complete you can see the 27 variables and read the diagnosis on screen. Then you have the option of emailing the results or retaking the test. The output of this test represents 6 months of programming effort.
Whether you are just interested in understanding your own personality and emotional state or will be undergoing the test (it is often used in court ordered evaluations) and want to know what to expect, then this App is for you!
If there is a response that you would like added as an option to a particular ink blot, drop in to the Reefwing Software Blog or Forum (www.reefwing.com.au) and let us know. We will then add it to the next version.
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun, easy, accurate
I liked it! The analysis was very thorough and after doing it just once quickly it was rather accurate. I will have to do it again and see if the results change at all. I would recommend this app for anyone interested or curious. It's the first inkblot test app I've tried and I enjoyed it.
Not really enough options
I think the idea of the app is good, but it does not have enough options to choose from in the "what you see." For example, obviously in some of them you see the stereotypical bat or whatever, but with a lot of them, I felt I saw a mountain or something else and that was not an option. I mean imagine you see a mountain and the other choices are things like mermaids? I have heard a lot of interesting things about these types of tests, but this app was not a good avenue to take one. Granted, I didn't expect to get an expert psychological test from an app on the App Store...
I learned a lot. Thank you. Whoever put this together was knowledgeable and invested a lot of their time into it.
