umm... The time it takes to administer the test alone is prohibitive to its use as an employment tool. Interpretation needs to be done by a medical professional.

I've seen Myers-Brigs (and its various permutations) used in employment situations. But the MMPI or MMPI-2? Again the data would be useless. Especially the MMPI data as it needs a pro to know what parts of that test are still relevant and which parts can be thrown out.

Finally, to be repetitive, the MMPI and MMPI-2 are nothing like a myers-brigs assessment as they are diagnostic tools, no pat personality tests.

As has probably been pointe out in other areas... this is a psychological diagnostic test. It is generally administered to one who seeks counseling or help. It is used in context with interviews and generally trying to figure out what problems, if any, a patient has.

It is _not_ used by employers. In fact the data is irrelevant in an employment situation as, again, it assumes you are trying to diagnose a patient, not screen a candidate.
