During Miami Music Week, the iHeartRadio crew took over The Music Lounge at The W for a special showcase with major players in the EDM scene. While many were there to talk about the music industry, iHeartRadio Brand Ambassador Brian Fink took this opportunity to put forth an interesting experiment. 

The Rorschach inkblot test is a psychological study used to understand an individual's personality characteristics. When implemented with leading EDM artists, we get some surprising results, which could explain why they are at the top of their field. A few artists saw the same thing, which is normal for the test, but others saw things like The Millenium Falcon, a skeleton, an orgy and one even thought they saw deadmau5. Check out the results below:
