The students are exposed to a picture through the help of video projector, OHP, for a total period of one minute. The students should see the picture critically, since the picture is blurred and recognition of the characters in the picture is very essential to reach to a rational understanding. The psychologist will explain the procedure and give exhaustive guidelines which should be adhered strictly as per the laid down norms. A sheet of paper will be provided to append your story most appropriate to the picture, keeping in mind the guidelines given subsequently.
