AbstractThe MMPI answer sheets of 30 psychiatric and 30 non-psychiatric patients at a Veterans Administration Hospital were scored for the standard MMPI and the scales of kincannon's 71-item Mini-Mult. Correlational data demonstrated good correspondence between the MMPI and the Mini-Mult for groups. Correlations ranged from .62 to .85 for the psychiatric group and from .20 to .81 for the non-psychiatric group. The psychiatric group was somewhat superior to the non-psychiatric group in terms of correspondence, which was expected. Individual profile pairs were also compared. An analysis of the validity scales, high points, and gerneral elevation indicated that the individual Mini-Mult profile was, in many cases, a poor predictor of its corresponding MMPi profile. Though the utility of the Mini-Mult in clinical practice is minimal, it could be usefully empolyed forresearch in group comparison.
