 The term Apophenia is attributed to Klaus Conrad,who defined it as the “unmotivated seeing of connections” accompanied by a “specific experience of an abnormal meaningfulness”.

In 1958, Klaus Conrad published a monograph titled Die beginnende Schizophrenie. Versuch einer Gestaltanalyse des Wahns (“The onset of schizophrenia: an attempt to form an analysis of delusion”),in which he described in groundbreaking detail the earliest stages of schizophrenia. He coined the word “Apophänie” to characterize the onset of delusional thinking in psychosis. This neologism was translated into English as “apophenia” (from the Greek apo[away from] + phaenein [to show]) to reflect the fact that a schizophrenic initially experiences delusion as revelation.

another type of “non-ordinary bias”:

With Amos Tversky and others, Kahneman established a cognitive basis for common human errors that arise from heuristics and biases (Kahneman & Tversky, 1973; Kahneman, Slovic & Tversky, 1982; Tversky & Kahneman, 1974), and developed prospect theory (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979).

Paranoia is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear , often to the point of irrationality and delusion . Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself. Historically, this characterization was used to describe any delusional state. In modern colloquial use, the term “paranoia” is sometimes misused to describe a phobia .

Projective Testing

A klecksograph by Justinus Kerner, published 1879

Klecksography is the art of making images from inkblots.[1] The work was pioneered by Justinus Kerner, who included klecksographs in his books of poetry.[2]

Hermann Rorschach created the inkblot test in 1921

Using interpretation of “ambiguous designs” to assess an individual’s personalityInterpretation of inkblots was central to a game, Gobolinks,[12] from the late 19th century.

It has been suggested that Rorschach’s use of inkblots may have been inspired by German doctor Justinus Kerner who, in 1857, had published a popular book of poems, each of wh
ich was inspired by an accidental inkblot.[14] French psychologist Alfred Binet had also experimented with inkblots as a creativity test,[15] and, after the turn of the century, psychological experiments where inkblots were utilized multiplied, with aims such as studying imagination and consciousness.[16]

Samuel Beck, Bruno Klopfer , Evald Bohm, which is closer to the original Rorschach system and rooted more deeply in the original psychoanalysis principles.

Rorschach never intended the inkblots to be used as a general personality test, but developed them as a tool for the diagnosis of schizophrenia. It was not until 1939 that the test was used as a projective test of personality, a use of which Rorschach had always been skeptical.
