Plate IV

Black ink. A roughly triangular blot, point up, with the two lower corner regions resembling boots or feet.

This is the "father card." The "boots" are fairly conspicuous; between them is the apparent head of a dog or Chinese dragon. Many subjects see the blot as an animal skin. After a few seconds, though, most can see it as a standing figure seen from below.

Common descriptions are bear, gorilla, or man in a heavy coat. 

Bad descriptions are monster or attacking bear or gorilla--Rorschach theorists equate your description of the figure with your perception of your father or male authority figures. 

Signs of Sexual Deviency: two penises (on either side of blot, near top of triangle); vagina (on center line near top of blot).
