This is based on the The Thematic Apperception Test, or TAT, is a projective measure intended to evaluate a person's patterns of thought, attitudes, observational capacity, and emotional responses to ambiguous test materials. In the case of the TAT, the ambiguous materials consist of a set of cards that portray human figures in a variety of settings and situations. The subject is asked to tell the examiner a story about each card that includes the following elements: the event shown in the picture; what has led up to it; what the characters in the picture are feeling and thinking; and the outcome of the event. 

So watch out what you write or maybe someone will think you're nuts!

  1. This painting reflects the larger than known bisexuality of men in our society. The older man is only half open and repressed to his desires, or to his past experiences, desires, and/or fantasies.

    The younger man, encultured to be more openly gay, is aware of the older man's nature. The young man's "gay-dar" has alerted him. But the younger has to amplify his intuitive hunches with the dectective's spy glass.

    So now it (Bisexuality) is more exposed...I believe that more than 65% of men have had bisexual experiences. Now, many at their later ages of 45-65yo. are coming out.

    Thank goodness they are finally taking off their patches, and the cloaks and masks of SHAME. The most noble of lifetimes is to have lived ONE'S COMPLETE TRUTH.

  2. The guy was determined to see the world through another man's eyes.
    'Don't. Believe me,' the man in the eye patch said,'I've tried.'

  3. Sorry for the delay. I was laid up with foot prolems and surgery for the last month.

    The winner is Will Green.
