The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory II (MMPI-2)
The MMPI, originally published in 1943, is currently the most widely used and studied objective personality test in the world. The MMPI has been translated into over 20 languages and it has become one of the most important personality assessment inventories in the fields of clinical, counseling and industrial psychology. Most professionals routinely use the MMPI-2 as a clinical instrument to integrate diagnostic with treatment activities. This test will comment on the client’s approach to taking the test, estimate consistency and accuracy, describe the client’s general personality (in terms of symptoms, traits, behaviors), elucidate conflicts and defenses, consider factors of risk, control and overall level of adjustment.
