Stability of the MCMI-III in a substance-abusing inpatient sample



Stability of the MCMI-III in a substance-abusing inpatient sample



Psychological Reports 83(3 Pt 2): 1273-1274



The stability of the MCMI-III personality disorder and clinical syndrome scales was assessed in a substance-abusing inpatient sample of 35 African-American men over an average test-retest interval of 6 mo. Estimates were higher for the personality pattern scales than for the clinical syndrome scales. The Dependent personality pattern scale (.83) and the Narcissistic personality pattern scale (.80) were reliable after about six months, whereas Drug Abuse, Somatoform, and Major Depression showed lower stability. As in previous research using the MCMI-I/II, estimates were lower than those reported in the test manual.
