Abstract

Nine of the ten clinical scales of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory were considered as measures of the Neuroticism, Psychoticism, and Extraversion personality dimensions of Eysenck. The correspondence between the conceptual placement of the scales in Eysenck's three-dimensional space and their empirical placement in factor space was tested for 205 married males and again for 205 married females. The correspondence was significant for both sexes but considerably stronger for the females than for the males.
