Abstract

We applied the methodology presented in references to study the possible fractalstructure of ink-blots of Rorschach, a projective test of personality that may giveinformation about the emotional state, intellectual functioning and integration of asubject. It was found that such ink-blots have a fractal structure which can becharacterized in detail by the calculation of Generalized Fractal Dimensions, FractalMeasures, Fractal Variance Functions and Marginal Density Functions. Such parameters,also revealing very similar distributions among the ten ink-blots, were shown to be validfor the discrimination of the basic features of these figures and, in particular, on the basis of a phenomenological model [7], to characterize their aesthetic attractiveness and theircomplexity.
