Advantages

The FTT has both advantages and drawbacks. Among its major assets are: that it provides a comprehensive evaluation of the child’s personality, as it assesses 30 personality variables; cards are presented to the child in sets of three (three versions of the same character) thus giving the child the opportunity to project different aspects of him/herself and finally, the symbolic nature of fairy tale characters facilitates the process of identification and projection. Some of its major drawbacks include the length of administration (approximately an hour); the intricacies of rating or scoring (ie. finding the character with whom the child identifies with e.g. aggressor or victim); because of the large number of variables the issue of overlapping is unavoidable (especially in the several types of motivational aggression).
