In their just–released article, Reaffirming normal: The high risk of pathologizing healthy adults when interpreting the MMPI–2-RF, Odland, Lammy, Perle, Martin, and Grote (2015) post up an insightful and thoughtful study of potential flaws and dangers inherent in a straightforward (read: failure to consider statistical precepts as well as contextual variables) interpretation of the MMPI–2–RF. My favorite line from this paper:

“Asserting that the MMPI is somehow immune from type I error is to eschew fundamental statistical probabilities.”

Amen.

Dr. Odland contacted us and extended his link to 50 free copies of their article, available here while they last. Neuropsych Now extends a massive Thank You to Odland, Lammy, Perle, Martin, and Grote for their hard work and for enabling free access to good science!
