Montag, I., Birenbaum, M. (1988). On the Relationship Between the MMPI and Cattell's Normal and Abnormal Personality Factors. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 8(3), 275-286.
The present study reports factor-analysis results of the relationships between Cattell's 16 PF-A, CAQ-Part II, and the MMPI. The data were obtained from 781 Israeli male subjects in a personnel-selection setting. Nine factors were identified, which accounted for 60.6% of the total variance. These factors were labelled: General Psychopathology, Socialization, Defensiveness or Denial, Extroversion-Introversion, Superego or Conscientiousness, Anxiety or Neuroticism, Psychoticism or Infrequency, Toughness vs. Sensitivity, and Intelligence. This factor solution is discussed in light of relevant factor-analysis studies of personality questionnaires.
