The reality that the response is not interceded by language suggests that the technique may be less subject to cultural and age restrictions than many other projective techniques. It can be administered alone or in group settings in a short period of time (Machover, 1947).

Projective techniques have traditionally been associated with psychological evaluation, and recent studies have been published using such techniques with abused children (Allen & Tussey, 2012) to study attachment (Stronach et al., 2011), emotional response (Becker, Rubly, El Kahtib, Becker, & von Gontard (2011), and other social and psychological variables (Annunziata, Givannini, & Muzzatti, 2012).

Even the Rorshach Inkblot Test, a projective technique, has been found to be culturally biased (Kaplan, Rickers-Ovsiankina, & Joseph, 1956).
Stimuli were selected on the criteria of their capacity to generate responses in more number of scoring categories and varied range of responses, hence the modified version of hand test would measure cultural input in addition to retaining its projective character "no single test can be entirely culture free and its results are based on norms of that population which are prone to favour its habitants." Kline in 1986 persuaded that new projective techniques should have specific percept which means that stimulus should measure specific aspects of personality rather than general and should measure some defence mechanisms and they should be relatively unstructured.
