Clinical Personality Assessments

I’m studying and need help with a Psychology question to help me learn.

Clinical personality assessments can only be completed and interpreted by a licensed psychologist who is trained in testing and assessments. Personality testing is usually done as a part of a larger battery of psychological assessment. An individual or even several personality tests would not be administered in isolation without the supporting evidence from other testing and interviews. This week you will become familiar with some of the main personality testing instruments.

To Prepare

  • Review the Learning Resources about the six clinical personality measures (i.e., Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2, Millon Clinical Mutliaxial Inventory-III, Personality Assessment Inventory, Revised NEO Personality Inventory, the Rorschach, the Thematic Apperception Test). Then, choose one that will be the focus of your Assignment.

Assignment: (2–3 pages, in addition to title page and references)

Review one of the clinical personality measures from the materials you studied this week (i.e., Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2, Millon Clinical Mutliaxial Inventory-III, Personality Assessment Inventory, Revised NEO Personality Inventory, the Rorschach, or the Thematic Apperception Test) and include the following in your review:

  • Provide a detailed description of a clinical personality measure (i.e., Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2, Millon Clinical Mutliaxial Inventory-III, Personality Assessment Inventory, Revised NEO Personality Inventory, the Rorschach, or the Thematic Apperception Test).
  • Evaluate strengths and limitations of this personality measure.
  • Provide a minimum of two (2) examples and explain how this clinical personality measure could be used in professional settings.
  • Explain how a personality theory/theoretical orientation you studied in Module 1 relates to the clinical personality measure you selected for this Assignment. There is not necessarily a right or wrong answer but rather a rationale you provide in your analysis.
