Well, the worst DSM-III boner (pun intended) was classifying homosexuality as a mental disorder. That has, of course, been corrected. In addition, the MMPI has been revised (MMPI-II) and better norms have been established.
The MMPI scale Jocelyn is referring to was less revealing in terms of sex-role identities.
