How you see your own body image
"I see a fox. I don't feel anything. It reminds me of Fantastic Mr Fox."
Good/Common Answers: Bat, butterfly, female figure (in the centre), moth
Bad Answer: Anything insulting about the female figure (it is an indicator of your own body image)
Paranoid Tendency: Faces e.g mask, animal face, jack o lantern
- I guess I feel foxy!
The animal face is paranoid...?
Your feelings of anger or physical harm
"Two people kneeling on their heels, touching palms. They have on red hats & red pants & long brown tunics. This makes me think of some kind of friendship, support, a pact. "
Good/Common Answers: Butterfly, cave entrance, Two human-like forms
Anything else indicates a sign that you have trouble relating to people.
Indicates social interactions with others & sexual preference
"Two people playing drums, with fire coming out of their heads & chests. The fire makes me think of heat, or passion. This makes me feel like listening to music. It's got energy to it."
Potential heterosexual response: Seeing two male figures
Potential homosexual: Seeing two androgynous or female figures.

Your perception of your father or male authority figures
"a squashed bug or something. it just looks ugly to me."
Good/Common Answers: A standing figure (man, bear, gorilla)
Bad Answers: To describe the figure as menacing in any way, i.e. a monster, or attacking gorilla, as this blot indentifies with your perception of your father, or authority figures.
Indicates mental problems (You should see only Bat or Butterfly)
"a bat. it has wide wings and pointy ears. it's cute."
Bad Answers: Anything else. Seeing the butterfly antennae as scissors or any cutting device is an indicator of a castration complex. Schizophrenics occasionally see moving people in this image. Seeing crocodile heads on the ends of the bat's wings indicates hostility.
Your subconscious attitudes about sexuality.
"a leaf on a branch. The top has some small, newly sprouted leaves & the bottom is a large leaf. It makes me feel odd because it looks upside down and proportioned strangely. "

- Ummmm? I will take the idea of the newly sprouted leaves as some spring fertility association.

"it looks like white clouds to me. It looks like the clouds are being reflected in a shiny surface, maybe a window. It seems kind of peaceful to me."
Good/Common Answers: Two Girls, Bunny or Women

Difficulty processing this may indicate trouble dealing with unstructured data
- I think I had difficulty with this...?
Test of your organizational ability
"This reminds me of sea life. The blue looks like coral and the yellow & orange spots like fish. The pink part seems like some kind of reef. It's like I am peering into a little, active community. It makes me feel connected in a way."
Bad Answers: Two faces at top centre blowing bubbles, or smoking pipes can indicate an oral fixation. Two animals eating a stick or tree indicates castration anxiety.
- Decent organization, I guess.
