...The TAT: The Thematic Apperception Test
Suzette Lamb
Argosy University
The TAT test was developed in the 1930s by psychologists Henry A. Murray, Christiana D. Morgan and other colleagues at the Harvard Psychological Clinic. The TAT Test or Thematic Apperception Test is a projective psychological test used to explore the unconscious of an individual in order to reveal the underlying parts of personality, internal conflicts, motives and interests. It has been one of the most widely used, taught and researched of tests of its kind (Combs, 1946).
The test evolved over approximately a decade in the 1930’s and 1940’ after a rocky start and three distinct revisions. An earlier manuscript titled “A Method for the Investigation of Unconscious Phantasies”, that was submitted in 1934, was rejected for publication by the editor of the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis by Ernest Jones.
Two important influences in the creation of this test were thought to be an undergraduate student, Cecilia Roberts and the American author Thomas Wolfe.
Cecilia was one of Murray’s students and was having difficulty in a study she was conducting comparing fantasies of blind people and sighted people. She tried to get her son to tell him her fantasies but he thought it was silly until she asked him to make up a story about a picture. When Cecilia talked to Murray about the vivid imagery in the story her son told her about the picture, Murray started...

Abstract
The history of the Thematic Apperception Test is controversial. This test was published in 1943 and is still widely used today. Being able to look at a photo card as a stimulus for storytelling was a breakthrough for personality testing. This test has its share of controversy as far as reliability, validity and cultural implications.
Key words; thematic, validity, reliability, personality.
Thematic Apperception Test for Personality Assessment
Personality test has been around for over a century and new ones are still being produced. Two of the most frequently used personality test is the Rorschach Inkblot Test, and the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT). We will look at the TAT’s origin, content, purpose, structure, administration and scoring guidelines. We will also look at the validity, strengths and weakness, and multicultural aspects of the test.
The Thematic Apperception Test evolved after over decade of work and was finally “published by Henry A. Murray and the Staff of Harvard Psychological Clinic in 1943” (Morgan, 1995). There was a lot of controversy over who the author really was. Christina Morgan was originally cited as the senior author when the Series B cards came out but later removed Morgan, 2002). The test had been through three...

Henry A. Murray: The Thematic Apperception Test
In reading 36, from the book “Forty studies that changed Psychology: Explorations into the history of Psychological Research” by Roger R. Hock, Henry A. Murray is introduced as a Psychotherapist who creates a method of testing a person’s personality and subconscious, thoughts, desires, and fantasies; otherwise known as a “projective” test (Hock, R). Murray and his partner, Christiana D. Morgan created this test and called it the “Thematic Apperception Test”, also called the “TAT” test. This test focused on the sole interpretation of their test subjects and depicted drawings and photos of people in realistic and relatable situations. “The “TAT” test was adapted to measure anxiety by assessing associations of self (vs. other) with anxiety-related (vs. calmness-related) words” (Egloff, B & Schmukle, S).
In the reading, Murray and Morgan, conduct a study on the effectiveness and possible flaws of this “TAT” test. The hypothesis of this study is if this “Thematic Apperception Test” is administered the subject/individual then will project their subconscious in their responses to the pictures/drawings of the “TAT” test. These results are then interpreted to help create a plan of action and a treatment plan for Counseling and Psychotherapy (Noy-Sharav, D).
In 1938, Murray published a book on his...

...Arithmetic Progressions (AP)
An arithmetic progression is a list of numbers where the difference between successive numbers is constant. The terms in an arithmetic progression are usually denoted as T1 , T2 , and T3 , where T1 is the initial term in the progression, T2 is the second term, and so on. Thus, Tn is the nth term of the arithmetic progression. An example of an arithmetic progression is….
2; 4; 6; 8; 10; 12; 14;
Since the difference between successive terms is constant, we have….
T3 - T2 = T2 – T1
Thus, in general, we will denote the difference of the two consecutive arithmetic progression terms as “d”, which is a common notation.
Geometric Progressions (GP)
A geometric progression is a list of terms as in an arithmetic progression but in this case the ratio of successive terms is a constant. In other words, each term is a constant times the term that immediately precedes it. Let us write the terms in a geometric progression as T1 , T2 , T3 and so on. An example of a geometric progression is
10; 100; 1000; 10000;
Since the ratio of successive terms is constant, we have….
Thus, the ratio of successive terms is usually denoted by r and the first term again is usually written as T1. If we know the first term in a geometric progression and the ratio between successive...

Thematic Apperception Test
Olive Jane M. De Leon
BS Psychology 3-5
The Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), is a projective psychological test. Proponents of this technique assert that a person's responses reveal underlying motives, concerns, and the way they see the social world through the stories they make up about ambiguous pictures of people.[1] Historically, it has been among the most widely researched, taught, and used of such tests.[2]
History
The TAT was developed during the 1930s by the American psychologist Henry A. Murray and lay psychoanalyst Christiana D. Morgan at the Harvard Clinic at Harvard University. A widely held belief is that the idea for the TAT emerged from a question asked by one of Murray's undergraduate students, Cecilia Roberts.[3] She reported that when her son was ill, he spent the day making up stories about images in magazines and she asked Murray if pictures could be employed in a clinical setting to explore the underlying dynamics ofpersonality.
Murray wanted to use a measure that would reveal information about the whole person but found the contemporary tests of his time lacking in this regard. Therefore, he created the TAT. The rationale behind the technique is that people tend to interpret ambiguous situations in accordance with their own past experiences and current motivations, which may be conscious or unconscious. Murray reasoned that by asking people to tell a story about a picture,...
