|Last week's Friday Rorschach drawing. What might it be?|
My goals is fairly simple. I want to do something fun. I want to post a drawing and have people come up with clever, creative ideas for what it might be. Whereas the actual Rorschach inkblot test is a real psychological assessment tool psychologists can use to examine a person's personality and emotional make-up, the Friday Rorschach is supposed to be an enjoyable game.
Instead of just keeping it on Twitter, I thought it would be good to make it a regular part of this blog as well. Here is how it will work.
1. On Friday morning, around 10am Eastern/8am Mountain I will tweet the picture. You can follow me at www.twitter.com/mwachtel to see the tweet.
2. You can respond to the tweet yourself, or you can view others' responses over the course of the next few hours. Make sure to search on #kiddrawing and include it in any of your responses.
3. On Friday afternoon, I will post the picture to this blog, along with an explanation of what my kid was thinking when he/she drew it (sometimes, the thought process is more obvious than others), and I will also include some of the responses I've gotten from Twitter.
4. Everyone will love it (right?).
So, get ready. I have a great picture all ready to go for tomorrow morning!
By the way, last week's responses to the above picture ranged from angry fish, to angel wearing a mask, to alien robot, to Bane from Batman, to new South Park character. It is meant to be a flying ninja.
