TAT Interpretation Himelstein Page 2 Prompting is allowed if story elements are omitted, but prompt each of the story elements only once per story. Do not ask specific leading questions.

It is better to phrase the prompting questions as noted above. Administer each card individually and have the examinee tell each story out loud.

The test administration can be tape-recorded, with the consent of the examinee, but it is good practice to write down their responses verbatim as well. Interpretation: There are no formal, normative standards for the TAT.

The simplest procedure for studying TAT responses is the inspection technique. Most clinicians interpret the TAT stories informally; repetitive patterns or themes become apparent by reading through a subject's stories.

It is useful to know the typical themes and stories that are elicited by each of the cards. Deviations from these may offer rich interpretive value. It is important to look for corroboration of patterns in other stories, other test results, or in background information.

Bellak says "A repetitive pattern is the best assurance that one does not deal with an artifact". One main thing to consider in the interpretation of the TAT is that the pictures are best seen psychologically as a series of social situations and interpersonal relations.

Another way to consider them is that all characters in the stories are projected aspects of the self, keeping in mind that they may represent the ideal self, the real self, the feared self, etc.

The lack of standardization of the cards given and scoring systems applied is problematic because it makes comparing research on the TAT very difficult. In your story, be sure to tell what has led up to the event shown in the picture, describe what is happening at the moment, what the characters are feeling and thinking, and then give the outcome. For Murray, it was also critical toidentify the needs, motives and desire of the hero.

One card is completely blank and is used to elicit both a scene and a story about the given scene from the storyteller. When an experienced examiner rereads the stories a second time, he can, almost with- out effort, find a repetitive pattern running through them, or he can find facts of different stories falling together into a meaning- ful whole.


In the second part a concerted attempt must be made to be concretely descriptive. Particularly, the descriptive level is a crutch; it may suffice just to state the theme at this level in one's mind.
