The Association for Qualitative Research
The Hub of Qualitative Excellence


Example of a projective technique in which participants are asked to draw, in abstract form, something relevant to the research project. So they might for example draw a specific brand, or an experience (such as a having a headache). These drawings are usually described and interpreted by respondents themselves as part of the subsequent discussion.
