A personality assessment refers to techniques designed to measure the characteristic patterns of traits that people display across various situations. The Personality Assessment at Heritage is performed by a psychologist using the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) method. This method is a series of True or False questions used mostly for diagnostic clarification that can only be performed by a psychologist trained to do so.
Personality assessments involve the administration and interpretation of analytically supported measures of personality traits in order to:
Confirm a diagnosis
Structure and inform treatment plans
Increase the accuracy of predicting behavior in multiple settings
How long does the Personality Assessment take?
The Personality Assessment at Heritage takes four (4) hours to complete. During the test, the client will receive multiple true/false questions and the test will then be interpreted by our psychologist. Results and recommendations will be given in a one-hour session after completion of the assessment.
*This test is restricted for clients that are 18 and older at Heritage.
