Abstract : The projective hypothesis states that an observer's response to an ambiguous stimulus will reflect the press of the stimulus as it is interpreted by the observer (beta press) as well as the press of the stimulus as it exists in reality (alpha press) or as it exists independently of the observer (Murray, 1938). Further, it has been hypothesized that the beta press is more or less isomorphic with certain personality traits. By examining the responses of an observer to stimuli of varying levels of ambiguity, one may expect to gain a relatively comprehensive personality picture of him. The identification of such personality traits has been the primary task of projective techniques. (Author)
