FACTOR ANALYSIS AND ROTATION OF THE 566 MMPI ITEMS
Abstract:Because of the still imperfectly understood basic factor structure of the MMPI, a Principal Components Analysis and Varimax Rotation was conducted on the MMPI item responses of 50 female undergraduate students of Education at Massey University. Eight factors were extracted which were named: Neuroticism, Anti-social behavior, Fundamentalist religiosity, Subjectivity, Introversion, Paranoic tendency, Depression and Physical symptoms. The possibly different factor structure for males and females needs explication in further work.
