FWIW, I remember that test being called the MMPI, not MMPT. Inventory, not Test.
Don't know what they call it nowadays. I do know that for a very long time its norms were rooted in 1953 USA. Good or bad, that was the diagnostic milieu in which the original Inventory was developed. Any guess what the DSM was like in 1953?
