Since the introduction of the Rorschach Inkblot Test in 1921, there has been increasing interest in the "projective" test instrument. During the last decade, empirical study in this area has increased rapidly.
The development of tests of humor perception has had a similar history, although few empirical, quantitative studies have been conducted.
The need for standardized procedures of projective testing, and the apparent usefulness of tests of humor perception were two factors which motivated the study reported in this paper.
