  • MMPI question

    Been over 20 years since I've taken (and passed) the test and now I have to take the test again for another agency. I recall a question about if you feel like "smashing things sometimes". I honestly dont recall how I answered before (it was over 20 yrs ago). I'm very even keeled but I'm wondering if being on the job for so long will skew how I answer (in a bad way).

    And the questions are designed to see if you studied for them.

    Answer the questions honestly

    You will most likely "fail" the test as most EXPERIENCED LEO''s do...................you will then have an interview with the psychologist and work out the problems
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

    Are you fascinated by fire?

    Do you like tall women?

    Is your stool black and tarry looking?

    Blah, blah, blah.

      RE: Fire. I recall once having to explain that yes, I am fascinated by fire, and how I can sit by a campfire for hours just staring at it.

      RE: is your stool black and tarry. Don't remember that from the MMPI exam. Oily discharge? Now that's a different story....

      RE: if 20 years in LE will skew the determination (because sometimes you feel like smashing things). Now that's an interesting question. To ask it another way- what if 20 years has made me crazy??

      Here's my take on the MMPI: it mostly weeds out people who either aren't able to mask their issues, or their issues are too large to be masked.

      I also think, based on my experience, is the kooks on the job now were kooks fifteen, twenty years ago. The job didn't change them. They've always been *touched*.

      (Insider note: these types often move up the ranks quickly because agencies don't know what to do with them except get them off the front lines. That's when the fun really begins.)

      Gonads are useful for their purpose, but they are no substitute for brains.
