Williams, K. B., Wallbrown, F. H. (1993). Discriminating between Rejectors, Premature Terminators, Short-term Successes, and Long-term Continuers using 16 PF Scores. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 10(2), 113-128.
A multiple discriminant function analysis was performed to determine what, if any, personality differences can be identified for clients who refuse counseling, terminate prematurely, attain their goals in short-term counseling, or continue for long-term counseling. The 16 PF was administered to 282 adult clients in a community mental health center and used to predict their response to counseling. Two significant canonical discriminant functions were obtained. A hit rate of 51% was obtained which is considerably better than the 33% rate than would be expected on the basis of random assignment.
