TAT test: giocando con Ingeborg

The meaning of your responses

This project is designed to give you information about both language use and personality assessment. The picture you were asked to describe came from the Thematic Apperception Test, or TAT. The purpose is to see how individuals reveal parts of their own personalities while looking at an ambiguous picture. The words that you used were analyzed using the LIWC (Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count) program developed at the University of Texas and University of Auckland in New Zealand. If you would like to get more information on LIWC, go to www.liwc.net.

Your TAT description: Two collegues are working on an experiment: even if they are at the same professional level, the man feels the right of checking how she is proceeding in the experiment; she is tollerating his presence, feeling uncomfortable. Is not to be excluded that the man, instead of really paying attention at what is happening during the experiment, is evaluating the fuckability of the collegue.
