... in the field. The field is also still open for more and more research as there are many contradicting issues as far as different **geometries** are concerned. This mostly applies to affine **geometry**, absolute and Euclid **geometry**. They tend to agree one side and contracting on the other angle ad these conflicting ideas may compromise the understanding of the items by scholars. References Eves, H., (1990).

...; these are objective and **projective** tests (Framingham, 2011). **History** The period between 1890 and 1905, referred to as the “laboratory period” saw early researchers develop experimental methods which resulted into tests used in measuring the responses of individuals (Coon & Mitterer, 2010). These methods gradually gained fame in psychological spheres. **Projective** tests came into use due to the emergence of Freud’s psychodynamic theories. Initially, word association technique was used which spread further in 1920s with Herman Rorschach’s publication of the test bearing his name. The word processing technique involved the examinee responding to various stimulus words where the first word to...

...? Running Head: **Projective** Techniques **Projective** Techniques Underlying **projective** techniques is the concept of `**projection**' - a concept that is attributed to the work of Sigmund Freud **Projection** basically relates to how unconscious and often suppressed beliefs can be transferred (**projected**) on to external objects. **Projection** can be seen as a cornerstone of much current management theory. It played an important role in Murray's identification of psychological needs. In turn Murray's work provided the theoretical basis for much early management research such as achievement motivation, competency based models of management...

...Fractal **Geometry** Fractal **geometry** is rather new mathematical theory which is completely different from the traditional concepts of Euclidean **Geometry**. Fractal **geometry** describes elf-similar or scale symmetric objects. It means that if to magnify these objects, their parts will bear an exact resemblance to the whole object. The word "fractal" was created by Benoit Mandelbrot and it means "to break", whereas the form of adjective "fractus" means "fragmentated". (Brandt 24)
It is a matter of fact that the word "fractal" has two definite meanings: the first meaning refer to colloquial use and the second is connected with **geometry**. In colloquial speech fractal...

...**Geometry** **Geometry** is a branch of mathematics that deals or attempts to explain and describe the shape, size, or relative position of an object in space. The study of **geometry** dates back to the time of ancient Greek. The Euclidian **geometry** for example originated in the 6th century and it laid the foundation for modern **geometry**. Currently, the study has advanced to include other branches of mathematics such as number theory, algebra, and topology. Riemannian **geometry** for example is among the latest braches of **geometry**. Each of the above fields of specialization has a different approach to the study of **geometry** (Mlodinow, 2002). Indeed, a good mathematician will view the different branches of **geometry** as mere tools designed to enable... ...

...Step Draw a line AB that we will be divided into 3 (in this case) equal parts. From point A, draw a line segment at an angle to the given line, and about the same length. The exact length is not important.
Set the compasses on A, and set its width to a bit less than one third of the length of the new line.
Step the compasses along the line, marking off 3 arcs. Label the last one C.
With the compasses width set to CB, draw an arc from A just below it.
With the compasses width set to AC, draw an arc from B crossing the one drawn in step 4. This intersection is point D.
Draw a line from D to B.
Using the same compasses width as used to step along AC, step the compasses from D along DB making 3 new arcs across the line

...of the complex **projective** plane. Kantor realized that the reflection action in the cohomology space of rational surfaces in algebra is blow-ups of the plane. Thus, all Weyl groups of type A2 x A1.A4.D5.E6.E7.E8 occur naturally when the 3-8 points are blown up. The final three groups occurred prior in algebraic **geometry** as the group of twenty seven lines on a cubic surface (type E6), the group of tritangent planes of a space sextic of genus 4 (type E8) and the group of bitangents on a plane quartic (type E8).
In the early twentieth century, P.Schoute found a convex polytope in 6-dimensional space that has vertices in a bijective connection with twenty seven lines on a cubic surface and the group of...
