Toward the Objective Diagnosis of Psychopathology: Generalizability of Modal Personality Profiles
Skinner, Harvey A.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 44, 1, 111-116, Feb 76
This study evaluated the representativeness of eight personality prototypes among alcoholic patients, prison inmates, general psychiatric patients, and normals. Classification hit rates ranged from 25.0 percent for a college student group to 53.6 percent for male prison inmates. These figures were substantially greater than chance. Two profiles were notably pervasive across all samples. (Author)
