Abstract

The ability of the Faschingbauer Abbreviated MMPI (FAM) and the MMPI-168 to substitute for the full Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) in broad psychiatric diagnosis was examined in a sample of 514 psychiatric inpatients. Each sex was randomly divided and multiple discriminant functions derived using long form scales as predictors. The discriminant functions were cross-validated on the other same-sex group using long and short form scales as predictors. All three forms achieved a 46% "hit" rate overall. No significant differences among the three forms were found.
