The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of four-point 16 PF codes (Krug, 1981) and 16 PF overall profile for a group of felons. Subjects consisted of 331 male felons from a reception and diagnostic facility in a Midwestern state. The 16 PF was included as part of the regular assessment batter at this facility. Means and Standard Deviations were computed for subjects and compared with scores for the standardization samples. Four-point codes were also determined for subjects and then considered in relationship to the level of motivational distortion evident for persons with each four-point code. The ten most common four-point codes were 2222, 2232, 2221, 1222, 2122, 3222, 2131, 1221, 2211, 2212.
