About the book:

An inkblot, a half-completed picture, a word. What do you make of them? What associations do they have for you? From inkblot tests to C. G. Jung's associative exercises to optical and perceptual tricks, The Psychobox is packed with everything you need to delve into the psyche. To open it is to discover secrets, surprises, and amazements.

The Psychobox contains forty-eight psychological tests and brilliantly diverse optical illusions, each on a 5 5/16 x 7 5/8 card with informative and witty instructions for use on the back, and each inviting the reader's participation. Also included is a sixteen-page booklet by the famed British doctor and theatrical director Jonathan Miller introducing the tests and putting them in their historical context. And the box itself contains a three-dimensional perceptual trick. Contents include:

   "  Inkblot tests: Samples of the classic diagnostic system based on subjects' interpretation of inkblots.
   "  The drawing completion test: A psychological exercise from the 1930s in which the reader is asked to complete several drawingswith a key provided for interpreting the results.
   "  The storytelling test: An exercise that offers insight into the reader's personality based on how they complete a story.
   "  The Thematic Apperception Test: A test that uses picturespaintings or photographsas a starting point for discovering inner thoughts and feelings.
   "  The Lüscher Color Test: A test from the 1940s that uses subjects' reaction to different colors to provide a detailed psychological profile.
   "  Plus many optical and verbal illusions that test perception and reveal the tricks the mind can play on us.
