Abstract

The present investigation shows that the addition of Millón Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI) high-point code data to the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) 78/87 code type may be used to clarify contradictory MMPI descriptors and produces three distinct clusters. These MMPI/MCMI clusters were designated as an interpersonally acting-in group, an emotionally acting-out group, and an emotionally acting-in group. In addition to the identification and elaboration of these three subgroups, we outline several clinical uses of this objective test battery approach. The results of this study support the efficacy of combining two objective assessment inventories for the purpose of multiaxial diagnosis as prescribed by the DSM-III.
