abstract

  • Evaluated the validity of MMPI codetypes for schizophrenia and depression according to the DSM-II and DSM-III. Mini-Mults, codetyped according to the rules of P. A. Marks et al (1974), were obtained from schizophrenic and affectively ill inpatients (N = 115) who were diagnosed according to the DSM-II and then the DSM-III. The MMPI codetypes were valid indicators of DSM-II diagnosis of schizophrenia and depression but were not successful in identifying DSM-III schizophrenics.
