Previously published research by the authors which analysed 2080 MMPI-2 protocols of personalinjury claimants assessed in a forensic psychiatry practice challenged the validity of code-type-based interpretations, the role the MMPI-2 plays in differential diagnosis, and assumptions made regarding diagnostically-specific patterns on the test. Although over 2 years old, this work was recently criticised by Butcher and Ben-Porath (2004) and the present article is a reply to those criticisms and concludes again the importance of empirical accuracy and an active hypothesis-testing approach.
