7 SSB TAT Pictures with Stories
TAT or Thematic Apperception Test is part of four psychology tests conducted on the second day of a five day SSB Interview. In TAT, Eleven Pictures are shown back to back for 30 seconds. Candidates get four minutes to write a relevant story around every picture including on a blank slide. These pictures are hazy or blurred but TAT Pictures are more clear than PPDT Pictures. The main difference between TAT and PPDT is that in TAT, candidates have to write the story only whereas in PPDT, candidates have to identify the number of characters, their mood, gender, and age.
How To Write a Proper TAT Story
- Observe the picture very carefully for 30 seconds
- Identify the main character as the Hero of your story
- Try to show OLQs through actions only.
- Try to identify hidden resources in the picture.
- Try to conclude the story with a positive outcome.
- The story of the blank slide should be related to the previous eleven pictures.
