Q18. ‘Pull’ of TAT Cards
The TAT cards tend to draw certain patterns of response that constitute their “card pull”. Some key aspects of card pull are:
- most people take note of certain features of each card e.g. the violin in Card (1), but rarely mention certain other features e.g. the horse in Card (2).
- TAT pictures commonly suggest certain themes or plots in the stories that are told to them.
- many of the pictures remind people of issues in their lives (e.g.. parent-child relationships) or particular concerns they have e.g. managing anger.
Familiarity with the frequently noted features, commonly elicited story lines, and issues often tapped for each card provides a backdrop for grasping the meaning of the stories people tell.
