Abstract

In this study it has been shown that the addition of MCMI high-point code types to the MMPI 28/82 code type clarifies contradictory MMPI descriptors and locates three distinct clinical clusters. These MMPI/MCMI clusters were defined as an interpersonallv acting-in group, an emotionally acting-out group and an emotionally acting-in group to describe the levels on which they characteristically operate. The results of this study lend support to the utility of combining two objective assessment instruments for the purposes of identifying and discriminating subtleties among relevant personality disorders (DSM-III: Axis II) and clinical syndromes (DSM-HI: Axis I).
