Pyschology test ( Story Writing ) Part 1

The third most important series of tests of ISSB psychology assessment demands the candidates to write stories. These are not the stories what we read in childhood but stories which demand concentration and serious mindset. These stories clearly put our thoughts and perceptions on paper and help psychologist make assessment of what we are.

Story writing tests are divided into two parts. In the first part we are shown an image which is mostly a sketch, consisting of some characters or objects. It is in Pakistani terms called story writing test. But its actual psychology name is "Thematic Apprehension Test." We are asked to look at it carefully for 30 seconds and then we are given 30 more seconds to think of a story which describes the situation in that picture. After that 3 and half min are given to us to write a story on that scene which we have just seen.

Here are a few examples:

Try to write some stories looking at them

Ash these pictures dont have some fix answer, everyone can imagine something different and everyone makes a different story.

what matters is that the story should be positive. A picture of a male and female sitting together , one can assume it as a couple on a date, and another one can assume as brother giving his sister tips regarding her studies.

you can think of anything, but it has to be positive.

Salam Sibtain Afzaal sir, its me Nawas Hasan again. I just have to say that all of your help and posts are just genius, thank you for creating this blog.

Here are my Thematic Apprehensions of the above pictures, I hope that you will check them out and reply:

1. After coming home from a nice long and refreshing morning jog, Javed cleans himself up for the whole day ahead. Afterwards, Javed studies for his final exams which are to be held this afternoon. Next up, he eats a splendid breakfast of parahtas and eggs and proceeds to his bus stop. In the process of walking to his bus stop, Javed thinks about doing his higher studies in the Engineering field so he can somehow contribute to the growth of his nation.

2. Abdul's mother is proud to have her son take up the responsibility of having a job. Abdul was accepted as a pilot in the Air force. Although living in poverty, Abdul now has the honorable and humble right to serve his mother land and bring change for his family. Abdul glorifies all poor sons wanting to change, and gives them a representation of hope.

3. Both twins Faraz and Sonia got good marks on their final papers. As soon as they reached their house, Faraz and Sonia ran up to their mother and gave her a big hug. All three were exuberant with joy. After a few hours, Faraz and Sonia returned with a thank you poster they drew for their mother because she was their inspiration and confidence. Faraz and Sonia's mother was so happy that she baked them their favorite homemade cake and they all celebrated.

sir,Thank You :)
