Document Summary

Only a handful of unstructured techniques has ever reached its distinction, the number of structured instruments for assessment has grown almost exponentially. Projective techniques largely lack the approval of psychometrically oriented clinicians. Contemporary psychometricians have relied mainly upon three tactics for personality test development: theory bounded approaches, factor analytic approaches, criterion key methods. Theory guided inventories stand in contrast to factor analytic approaches which often produce a retrospective theory based upon initial test findings. Prf is a true false inventory based loosely on murray"s theory of manifest needs. The forms differ in the number of scales and number of items per scale. In addition to parallel short tests (forms a and b) the personality research form (prf) also exists as parallel long forms (form aa and bb: these forms used primarily with college students consist of 440 true false items.
