Abstract

The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory 2 (MMPI-2) is a popular personality measure commonlyused by psychologists to examine psychosocial functioning in the medico-legal arena. However, potential flaws such as the criterion keying approach to test construction, the time expenditure for test completion, item overlap, and the number of scales developed for the test potentially limit the utility of this test in this setting. In 2006, Goh completed a doctoral dissertation in which she revised the MMPI-2 at the item level in an attempt to eliminate the structural problems. Using a sample of MMPI-2 profiles of more than 3,000 Australian personal injury claimants, this new structural approach adapted for use in the personal injury setting (MMPI-2-PI) featured internal consistency coefficients that are superior to those of the standard
MMPI-2, no item overlap across scales, and a raw score computations that permit items to be weighted according to their factor loadings on the components or facets to which they are allocated. The current study will compare the characteristics of the MMPI-2 and the MMPI-2-PI in both personal injury claimants and the MMPI-2 standardisation sample to address the incremental validity of this new structural approach
