The Rorschach exposed

The span style=”font-style:italic;”New York Times/span a href=”http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/24/business/24inkblot.html?_r=1″has an interesting article entitled,/a “Complaint Over Doctor Who Posted Inkblot Test” (thanks to the reader who emailed this): br /br /blockquoteThe doctor who helped Wikipedia publish the 10 inkblots of the Rorschach test is being investigated by his local doctors’ organization after it received complaints that his actions were unprofessional.br /br /In a letter Wednesday from the group, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan, the doctor, James Heilman, who works in an emergency room in Moose Jaw, was notified that two psychologists had filed complaints. /blockquotebr /br /Psychologists are bound by ethics to protect test security. The doctor who put the Rorschach cards up on Wikipedia along with other information is apparently not a psychologist but I believe that he has damaged test security and made it harder for those of us who rely on the Rorschach to understand clients and others. He believes otherwise. But in the age of the Internet, it’s hard to keep secrets. That’s good and bad.br /br /What do you think?
