(MAPI) Millon Adolescent Personality Inventory - Frequently Asked Questions

Is the MAPI instrument appropriate for use with normal adolescents?

Will recording the wrong sex make a difference on the profile?

Will recording the wrong age make a difference on the profile?

How can a MAPI instrument be invalid if there are less than 10 omissions?

Why is the MAPI instrument invalid because Scales 1-8 are all less than 64 BR?

I am trying to insert client responses but Q-global will not accept either t/f or T/F as the responses for true or false. What digits/numbers should I insert into the online form?

 


Is the MAPI instrument appropriate for use with normal adolescents?

Yes. Eighty-three percent of the normative population is junior and senior high school students in public and parochial settings.

 

Will recording the wrong sex make a difference on the profile?

Yes, because the MAPI instrument has separate male and female norms.

 

Will recording the wrong age make a difference on the profile?

Yes. There are two age ranges in the normative group, 13–15 and 16–18. Each age range has its own set of male and female norms. If the age falls outside of the relevant age range, the program will default to the norms closest to the client's recorded age. If the age is omitted, the default is 13–15.

 

How can a MAPI instrument be invalid if there are less that 10 omissions?

Check Scales 21 (Reliability) and 22 (Validity). If the client answered True to two or more items from Scale 21 or one from Scale 22, the report is invalid. Or if the client answered True to two or more items on Scale 22, the report is invalid.

 

Why is the MAPI instrument invalid because Scales 1–8 are all less than 64 BR?

These scores indicate that the adolescent responded to the items with a consistent pattern of nondisclosure. The presence of defensiveness or denial should be evaluated. It is also possible, but very unlikely, that the adolescent is being honest and does not have anything significant to report.

Please use 1 for True and 2 for False.
