ZAMBRANO CRUZ, Renato. Systematic review of the Minnesota multiphasic personality inventory - mmpi. Divers.: Perspect. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.10, n.1, pp.151-163. ISSN 1794-9998.

This paper seeks to establish the validity and enforceability of Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. To this end, a systematic literature review was performed. 452 papers that met the inclusion criteria of research in 2000-2010 were found. However we determined to use a proportional sample of 10% for each years, leaving a total of 46 articles. We found a constant use of the instrument, with research being done in various areas. The test has good psychometric properties, in addition to being endorsed by several other systematic reviews. We discuss the use made of the evidence, and we find that the instrument has broad utility, and also discuss the analysis of the instrument in many studies through clustering.

Keywords : Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory; MMPI; personality; psychological test; systematic review.
