Refining personality assessments by combining MCMI high point profiles and MCMI codes. Part III. MMPI code 24/42



Refining personality assessments by combining MCMI high point profiles and MCMI codes. Part III. MMPI code 24/42



Journal of Personality Assessment 49(5): 508-515



In this study it has been shown that the addition of MCMI high point code data to the MMPI 24/42 code type serves to clarify contradictory MMPI descriptors and produces three distinct clusters. These MMPI/MCMI clusters comprise an interpersonally acting-out group, an interpersonally acting-in group, and an emotionally acting-out group. These groups were useful in determining different roles for the MMPI 2 and 4 scales insofar as they relate to both personality (Axis II) and its clinical consequences (Axis I). The results of this study also lend support to the utility of combining objective assessment instruments both for identifying and for discriminating among relevant personality disorders and clinical syndromes.
