Psychodiagnostik (Psychodiagnostics) is a 174-page monograph written by Hermann Rorschach in 1921 containing the results of his studies on mental patients, and 10 cards that became the foundation of the Rorschach test.[1]

Based on the correspondence of Rorschach, available in Hermann Rorschach (1884–1922): Briefwechsel, the publishing process was a two year undertaking.[2]

A second edition was edited by Walter Morgenthaler and published in 1932.[3]

In 1942 it was published in English as Psychodiagnostics: A Diagnostic Test Based on Perception.
