Reefwing Personality Profile v1.2

Personality Profile v1.2 has been submitted to Apple for approval.

Version 1.2 adds the ability to purchase the Rorschach Ink Blot test from within the Personality Profile App.

The Rorschach Test measures both perception and association. It will provide you with insight into your personality characteristics and emotional functioning.

The test is named after its creator, Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach who detailed the relevant procedures in his book Psychodiagnostik, which was published in 1921. 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 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
7. Behaviour.

Once the evaluation is complete you can see the 27 variables and read the diagnosis on screen. Then as with the other tests you have the option of emailing the results or retaking this or another 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 in-App purchase is for you!
