RORSCHACH, HERMANN

(1884-1922) Earning his medical doctorate at the University of Zurich in 1912, Hermann Rorschach, a Swiss psychiatrist, created the commonly used Rorschach Inkblot Test for personality by standardizing a set of inkblots and developing benchmarks for quantitative scoring. Using comparisons of individuals with various diagnoses, he posited that varying types of experiences could be determined using the test, but died suddenly of peritonitis while resolving his general theory of personality.

RORSCHACH, HERMANN: "Hermann Rorschach was a Swiss psichiatrist."
