Validity of the MMPI Pd Scale Among Black Males
Elion, Victor H.; Megargee, Edwin I.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 43, 2, 166-172, Apr 75
The validity of the MMPI Psychopathic Deviate (Pd) and Pd+.4K scales to discriminate levels of social deviance among young black male prisoners was investigated in three studies. It was concluded that Pd and Pd+.4K both validly differentiate levels of social deviance but that the norms for the scales appear to show racial bias. (Author)
