ANALYSIS OF DEMOGRAPHIC FACTORS ON F SCORES AND EVALUATION OF NEW CONFIGURATIONS OF F SCALES
Abstract:We analyzed the influence of demographic factors on scores of the Infrequency scale of the MMPI (Archer, Gordon, & Kirchner, 1987) administered to male youth in China. The demographic factors, acting as influencing factors of F scores, could be ignored. New configurations of infrequency scales were presented and discussed, which indicated that it was appropriate to choose a 20% item endorsement percentage (IEP) of the Chinese male youth as the criterion for item selection.
