Simulating normal minnesota multiphasic personality inventory profiles as a favorable prognostic sign in schizophrenia


, : Simulating normal minnesota multiphasic personality inventory profiles as a favorable prognostic sign in schizophrenia. Australian Journal of Psychology 35(3): 433-444

The validity of simulating normal MMPI [Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory] profiles as a prognostic sign in schizophrenia was assessed. A reliable and valid system was used to establish the criterion diagnosis of schizophrenia through the use of a standardized structured interview and a diagnostic system based on the use of discriminant function analysis with nonpathognomonic symptom combination. Outcome criteria used included a variety of measures of schizophrenic thought disorder. Apparently the ability to simulate a normal MMPI profile upon request is a favorable prognostic sign. Weaknesses of the study are discussed.
