The relative contributions of subtle and obvious item endorsements to the prediction of a relevant criterion were assessed under faking and control ("honest") conditions. The MMPI and a nonconformity questionnaire were first administered to 100 male college students. Items on the Pd scale and 101 additional MMPI items that correlated significantly with the(More)
An attempt was made to determine if premorbid intelligence could be estimated in brain-damaged persons through the use of regression equations developed from a scale of items reflecting interests, attitudes, personal values, and personality characteristics that correlated with WAIS-R IQs. A total of 33 adults with no reported history of brain damage were(More)
Prediction of premorbid intellectual ability in brain-injured patients was investigated using two sets of regression equations and the Intellectual Correlates Scale (ICS). Eighty subjects completed the WAIS-R and the ICS. The four subject groups included a control group and right-hemisphere, left-hemisphere, and diffuse brain-injured groups. As expected,(More)
A total of 24 institutionalized retarded children, 12 mongoloid (Down's syndrome) and 12 nonmongoloid, were observed in dyadic interaction with peers in a free-play situation, and a number of specific peer-social and non-social behaviors were recorded as they occurred. Differences between mongoloid and nonmongoloid Ss were most apparent on several social(More)
This study investigated the ability of the MMPI Wiener-Harmon subtle subscales (on scales D. Hy, Pd, Pa, and Ma) to serve as subtle or unobtrusive measures of their scales. Forty outpatients completed the MMPI under standard instructions, followed by a fake-good or fake-bad instructional set. First, we investigated the paradoxical effect found in the MMPI(More)
Differences in Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) response latencies between groups instructed to respond honestly or fake were explored. There were 120 undergraduate students who completed a computer administered MMPI-2 with instructions to either respond honestly, to underreport psychopathology, or to overreport psychopathology.(More)
This article presents a review and critique of research on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) subtle items in regard to their validity as measures of their scales' characteristics. The main categories of focus are their convergent and discriminative validity, the paradoxical effect, and the issue of whether removing these items would(More)
Fifteen male and 15 female American therapists-in-training (clinical and counseling psychology graduate students) were asked to take the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) under each of two instructional sets. In one set, they were instructed to respond to the items as a healthy male would respond, and in the other, as a healthy female would(More)
