This study shows that the addition of MCMI high-point code data to the MMPI 89/98 code type serves to resolve contradictory MMPI descriptors and produces three distinct clusters. These clusters include an interpersonally acting-out group, an interpersonally grandiose group, and an emotionally acting-out group. The results of this study lend further support to the efficacy of combining two objective assessment inventories for the purposes of multiaxial diagnosis as prescribed by the DSM-III.
