Abstract

The general method of deriving the scales and the general nature of criterion and test groups are described briefly for the three scales intended for use in identifying hysteria, hypomania, and the psychopathic deviate. The classification used is based on clinical syndromes recognized in current psychiatric practice. For each of the three scales the authors have presented evidence concerning validity and reliability of the scale, the scale items and the answers keyed as symptomatic, the mean score and standard deviation obtained for normal subjects, and the correlations obtained with both normal and psychiatric cases between the given scale and the seven other scales included in the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory.
