MMPI-2 Content Scales: How Much Content Do They Measure?
Jackson, Douglas N.; Fraboni, Maryann; Helmes, Edward
Assessment, v4 n2 p111-17 Jun 1997

Results indicate that the convergent and discriminant validity of MMPI-2 content scales are compromised by substantial confounding general variance. (SLD)
