Word Association YKTTW Discussion
Another element of Hollywood Psych parring the Inkblot Test and the "What was your mother like?" question as far as comedic possibilities for a Psychiatrist setting. Typically the scenario is that the psychiatrist will ask the patient a series of words and are told to say the first word that comes to mind.
- ''SpongeBob SquarePants" "Fear Of A Krabby Patty" Spongebob visits psychiatrist Dr. P. Lankton who lists off ingredients of a Krabby Patty. Spongebob just repeats whatever Plankton says. When Plankton says "Tomato", Spongebob says "Tomato". For flimsy justification Spongebob explained that when Plankton said a word, Spongebob thought of it as well.
- An identical scene occurs in an episode of All Grown Up!.
- Batman Adventures #9 : Bruce Wayne visits a psychiatrist would tries this on him. Bruce has to lie the way through.
Doctor: Green.Bruce: (thinks of Posion Ivy) Money.Doctor: Work.Bruce: (thinks of fighting crime) That thing that Alfred does...
- Animaniacs "De-Zanitized" Yakko responds to Dr. Scracthensniff's word association, just not the words that the doctor wanted.
