Thematic Apperception Test(TAT):- In common terminology it is a story writing test. A candidate is shown a picture and he has to write a story on the picture. (In fact, there are 12 pictures including or excluding a blank picture). This test is based on the details of the pictures shown. A lot of details are created by a candidate on the basis of his own imagination. A problem, a difficult situation/ aim is visualized by a candidate and then the same is sorted out systematically by the central character (Hero) with or without the help of others. (But preferably with a group). Steps or action is taken by the central character to sort out the problem so visualized. It enables a candidate to show what he/she is. The hero/heroine represents the candidate as he/she is roughly of the same age and exactly of the sex as the candidate is. This test is generally given and interpreted by trained psychologists.
Word Association Test(WAT):- In the test, a candidate associates himself/herself with words given in the test and conveys his/her personality (OLQ) accordingly. A word can be used as a noun, verb, adverb or adjective depending on a candidates convenience. One must take care to be positive even in case of negative words. Through every response, the psychologist judges the personality of a candidate. Candidates are shown 60 words on the screen one after the other. Each word is displayed for 15 seconds in which the response has to be given in form of a short sentence.
