The MMPI-2 has come a long way… From its original standardization on Minnesota farmers the MMPI-2 has evolved to included various ethnic and age groups into its normative sample. However, there is still further research that needs to be done to expand the MMPI-2’s utility to minority populations. What do you think can be done when norm samples are not available to individuals you are testing?
