Google is running a doodle honoring Hermann Rorschach in parts of the world where it’s November 8th. It should be making its way over to our neck of the woods in a bit.

Hermann Rorschach would be the psychiatrist/psychoanalyst who developed the Rorschach inkblot test. Here’s what he looked like:

The day would be his 129th birthday. He died in 1922 of peritonitis at the young age of 37. He was Associate Director of the Herisau Hospital when he passed.

Google’s doodle naturally make use of the famous Rorschach test, letting users look at inkblots and share what they see with others via social media. Google is actually incorporating Facebook and Twitter sharing into the doodle, as well as Google+.
