In the presentation of projective techniques four steps will be taken:
- The first step focuses on the definition, general characteristics, classification and dominant theoretical perspectives on projective techniques.
- Given the high number and diversity of these techniques it was decided to elect the one most known and used among them, the Rorschach Inkblot Method, for a larger appreciation of its development. Particular emphasis will also be given here to the Exner Comprehensive System that was gradually developed as from the late 1960s.

- The final step includes some comments about the future of projective techniques.
