Short Description of Instrument
The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2-Restructured Form (MMPI- 2-RF) is a revised, 338-item version of the MMPI-2. Items are answered true/false. There are 50 scales: Restructured Clinical Scales, Validity Scales, Specific Problem Scales, Interest Scales, and Personality Psychopathology Five (PSY-5) Scales.
Proper administration requires that the test taker be able to respond meaningfully to the items. To provide meaningful results, the test taker must be able to see, read, and comprehend the items. Average reading difficulty is about the 6th-grade level. Audio administration via CD or computer software is available.
Administration time is 35-50 minutes.
Sport-Related Concussion Specific: 338-item version. Takes 50–60 minutes. Requires 6th grade reading level. Widely used in a variety of research and clinical settings to assess personality traits and typically patterns of coping with stress.
Use for primary questions of role of personality style/structure in modulating recovery trajectory
Age Range: MMPI-2 for >18; MMPI-A for ages 14–18
Uniform T scores are used for all scales except the Validity and Interest Scales (for which linear T scores were adopted).
Psychometric Properties
The MMPI-2 is the most extensively used and researched of the comprehensive personality assessment tools. The revised MMPI-2-RF provides a more time efficient approach to using the MMPI-2. It is psychometrically up-to-date and is linked to current models of psychopathology and personality.
