Internal Predictive Validity of Clinical Judgment and Personality Consistency.
Oresick, Robert J.; Sokol, Michael
Clinical judgement involves a search for internal consistency which can be validated by predicting responses within a protocol, or internally. Internal predictive validity assumes that one source of consistency is the individual--an assumption that was tested in a prediction task using the sentence completion test (SCT). Artificial protocols matching those of actual people were constructed by randomly drawing completions from a pool. Undergraduate subjects (N=40) were significantly more accurate in predicting actual responses, supporting the assumption of personality consistency and the internal predictive validity within the SCT.
