Project Assistant: Revisiting the Thematic Apperception Test with Computerized Linguistic Analysis
The Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) is a projective test which was important in the history of psychology. Developed by Dr. Henry Murray in the 1930's, the TAT was used extensively by psychologists between the 1930s and the 1970s. Since the TAT was administered extensively for decades, it is suspected that many of these TAT narratives still exist. The initial purpose of our project will be to locate these historical TAT narratives, archive them, and make them available for interested researchers who wish to apply more modern interpretive techniques. The second phase of the project will involve original research using the archived narratives.
