    Oops, realized I accidentally put my gender as male. Hope that doesn't affect the results too much.

    Validity
    • My TRIN is 9, which according to one of the keys Jennifer posted means that I am neither a "nay sayer" nor a "yea-sayer".
    • My VRIN is 5, which is below 13, which means the test should be relatively valid.
    • The Lie Scale, raw score was 2 which is less than 3. According to the same key, this means "Admitting to minor faults and shortcomings, independent, self-reliant."
    • On the K (Correction Scale), raw score was 16 which is less than the 22 cut-off for "defensiveness" (A high score could either be actual defensiveness or apparently a sign of higher socioeconimcs). The T-score was 51, which is greater than low end cut off of 46. A low score would have indicated "masochistic confessors, poor self-concept, distrustful, and angry."
    • S scale (Superlative Self-Presentation) T-score was 50 which is less than 65, which means there is not much of "a faking to look good bias."
    • On the F-scale (Infrequency), my T-score was a 51 which is between 45 and 70 which means I am neither presenting a "fake good profile" nor presenting "overall psychopathology, resentment, acting out, moodiness."
    • On the Fb-scale (Backside F), my T-score was 59, well below the score of 59 for "disturbed" individuals.
    • On the Fp-scale (Infrequency Psychopathology), my T-score was 49, well below the 71 cut-off, which means there is not much "exaggeration" of symptoms


    The rule of thumb for scales is that a T-score above 65 is considered high, while a T-score below 40 is considered low.

    High scores


    Low scores:

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Hahaha, I just looked up what those first two scores mean. It says I'm lying. Oh well, I'm not taking it again... Well... Maybe later. You know, when I feel like going through the same 500+ questions again... I'm not even going to bother posting all of the things I scored above 65, it would take up a whole page.
    Yes, haha. It just happens to be THE personality typing instrument, none of the others even come close.

    http://geisel.narod.ru/mmpi2.htm

    Tell us what you score >65 in.

    For me, I got:
    Correction: 68
    Superlative self-presentation: 71
    Repression: 67
    Psychopathic deviate, subtle: 68
    "Psychopathic Deviate-Subtle - Weiner (1948). (22 items) High: Social imperturbability, family conflicts, difficulties with intimate relationships and impulsive. Low: Conforming, compliant and shy. Correlates .56 with Pd, .38 with Hy-S, and .37 with Hy1 Denial of Social Anxiety. A rather independent subtle scale. These people function very well, but tend to have marital problems often due to the abuse or neglect they experienced within their family of origin."

    That sounds like this ISTJ guy I work with and also my ISTJ brother. Just the other day the former asked me if I thought he was impulsive. I told him I don't think impulsiveness is an issue unless it gets you in trouble, or may get you in trouble. "Abuse or neglect they experienced within their family of origin" might be exaggerated with this type. Almost everybody suffers somewhat as a child but these types focus only on the negatives in childhood.

    I took the MMPI in a clinical environment back in my troubled 20s, and the result was invalidated by some of my responses. I was an over-responder, and some parts on this huge test are designed to search for that. I use the vague term "parts" because I know a little about how this test works and I don't want to subconsciously bias anybody's results. I took the printed out chart result to the library and researched the example charts in the MMPI book. Except for some exaggeratedly high scales, it pretty closely matched the neurotic type. But I was disappointed not to receive a diagnosis based on this test.

    It will affect some scales relating to gender. I think there are two of those. And of course you noticed questions such as "I like collecting flowers or growing houseplants" which are gender-related.

    I highly doubt that the 65 rule of thumb will get you very far. The test result is not understood this way because some of those high scores may be the result of over-responding or lying.

    Here is one of many charts they use in diagnostics:

    The idea here is to diagnose the ENTIRE chart all at once. The proper way is in comparison to model charts representing the various mental illnesses.

    So I took the damn test again yesterday. It's not exactly the same as the MMPI-I from back then, but it's remarkably similar. It is tricky on so many levels. And yes there's a good reason for it lacking very many instructions. There's a good reason for every stupid little nit-picky thing on the test. And yes I know, Mr. or Mrs. Dr. Psychiatrist, my reacting to it this way is very, very revealing. But you won't tell me what that is.

    So what good is this?

    What do these numbers indicate? Valid or invalid test result?

    Here's the score key, by the way. It's pretty informative but complicated.
