Student Life: Personality Testing

In the 1930's, people's personalities were tested by Thematic Apperception Tests, or TAT's for short. Basically psychologists gave their patients a simple image and asked them to describe what was going on in that image. Their answers were supposed to reveal deep or hidden insights into their personalities. 

In a seminar we were showed a few examples including this one:

Here is my interpretation:

The young man is distraught at returning home to discover his lover having comitted suicide. Yet, because she wanted to lessen the blow for him, she pulled the blanket down in order to give him one last look at her perky tits. 

I wonder what this says about me?
