Negative Response Bias and the MMPI Overcontrolled-Hostility Scale: A Response to Deiker
Megargee, Edwin I.; Cook, Patrick E.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 43, 5, 725-729, Oct 75
This study tested Deiker's hypothesis that "naysaying" accounts for the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory Overcontrolled-Hostility (O-H) scale's ability to discriminate among criminal groups differing in their propensity for violence. It was concluded that the validity of the O-H scale is not dependent on naysaying. (Author)
