He was born November 8, 1884 in Zurich, Switzerland. He was a Swissh-Freudian psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. What's so special about him?

When he was in his school days, his friend called him Klecks or Inkblot by making fanciful pictures. Well, thanks to his Klecksography, he was best known for developing a test with it – Rorschach inkblot test or turning inkblots into images.

This test however was being designed to reflect unconscious parts of the personality. In the test, individuals are shown 10 inkblots, each individual asked to report what object they see.

After years of conducting inkbloc tests, Rorschach wrote Psychodiagnostik – a book describing how inkblot tests can be effectively used in psychoanalysis.

Rorschach died on April 1, 1922 before he could written a great piece of work.
