We describe the development and contents of an archive of narratives collected in response to the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), to be shared with psychology researchers, teachers, and students. This archive holds demographic data of respondents as well as the complete text of the narratives themselves. Some of the included narratives are historical, archived from previously published sources and from the records of clinicians; others will be newly collected from introductory psychology students at Middle Tennessee State University. We discuss possible uses and the strengths and weaknesses of the archive. This document describes the creation of an open-data archive of narratives collected in response to the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), and illustrates some of the archive’s potential uses for researchers, teachers, and students.
