Indirect techniques/ projective techniques are methods of assessment based on the psychoanalytic theory.
These were developed to assess the unconscious motives and feelings.
A less structured stimulus material is used onto which the subject projects his feelings and desires. These projections are interpreted by trained experts.
The person being assessed is usually not told about the purpose of the test.
Scoring and interpretation may sometimes be subjective.
