  2. MCMI: Description • An MMPI-like, true-false inventory • 175 items • Includes validity, clinical personality, and clinical syndrome scales • Based on Millon’s personality theory • Tied to DSM-IV diagnoses

  3. MCMI: Test Construction • Three phases • Theoretical-substantive • Internal-structural • External-criterion • Normed on clinical samples

  4. MCMI: Scales • Validity/Modifying Indices • X Disclosure • Y Desirability • Z Debasement

  5. MCMI: Scales (cont) • Clinical Personality • 1 Schizoid • 2A Avoidant • 2B Depressive • 3 Dependent • 4 Histrionic • 5 Narcissistic • 6 Antisocial • 6B Sadistic (Aggressive) • 7 Compulsive • 8A Negativistic • 8B Masochistic • Severe Personality Pathology • S Schizotypal • C Borderline • P Paranoid
