Object Relations Test

(ORT)
A projective test , developed during the 1950s at the Tavistock Clinic in London, and based on the psychoanalytic theories of Melanie Klein . Klein argued that children introject as ‘good objects’ and ‘bad objects’ those images of a person associated with situations of gratification or pain and deprivation. Over time, normal development sees these separate images fuse into a single object, comprising both good and bad elements. The test itself consists of 12 pictures with one, two, three, or groups of ambiguous figures, plus a blank. Respondents tell a story about what is happening. Responses are assumed to indicate conscious and unconscious personality dynamics.
