  • Description: A comparison was made of the relative validity of several sources of psychodiagnostic information, used in combination, and under conditions which resembled actual clinical situations. Materials used were: Social Case History, MMPI, Stein Sentence Completion Test, and the Rorschach. Superior batteries for psychodiagnostic purposes included both the MMPI and the Social Case History. Patients differed with respect to the accuracy of their diagnoses, and clinicians differed with respect to their diagnostic skills. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)
