Document Summary

Criteria used in selecting tests for discussion: all available structured personality tests can be classified according to whether they use one or some combination of the four strategies just discussed: logical-content, theoretical, criterion-group, and factor analytic. The logical-content strategy: the woodworth personal data sheet was the first personality test ever developed. Early multidimensional logical-content scales: two of the best-known early tests developed with the logical-content strategy were the bell adjustment. Mmpi argued that the meaning of a test response could be determined only through empirical research. Original development of the scales: beginning with a pool of 1000 items selected from a wide variety of sources, including case histories, psychological reports, textbooks, and existing tests, the original authors of the mmpi, s. r. Scale 2 above 80, scale 7 above 70, and the remaining scales between 60 and 69: this pattern is referred to as a one-three two-point pattern or, more simply, a 13 code, based on the two highest scales.
