Abstract:

Women who answered with “True” item 101 (“I believe worn en ought to have as much sexual freedom as men”) of the MMPI differed from those responding with “False” in being younger, in having better visuospatial reasoning skills as shown by higher IQ equivalents on the Raven's Matrices, and in scoring in a less pathological direction on MMPI measures of depression, neurotic tendencies, ego strength, and social isolation. The participants were 86 alcohol and drug addicts tested on admission to addiction treatment: only 18.6% responded with “False” to the MMPI item 101. Influencing female psychotherapy clients to adopt more old fashioned attitudes in respect to equal rights in the area of sexual freedom might be a iatrogenic step.
