The tested person is female, adult, anonymous (famous person). The time of completion of the test was 70 minutes, which corresponds to the average time interval required to complete the test. Code type for the profile of the participant is 24/42; this type is moderately defined because the next highest scale is not 5 T-score points below the highest scales. There is clear personal trend with certain potential for pathology. Overall level of adjustment is good, since the most elevated scales only slightly exceed 65.
The profile of the participant is reasonably valid, since VRIN is within the average interval, and TRIN is low. There were no unanswered questions. F-scale is within the normal range: F-score of 52 means that the person perceives the world similarly to most people. At the same time, Fb and Fp scales are elevated, especially Fp. Fb score of 70 indicates that there might be certain antisocial and rebellious manifestations. High Fb and Fp scores combined with moderate F score mean that the person attempted to exaggerate own predisposition for pathology by trying to “fake bad” in the second part of the test. The hypothesis about the exaggeration of symptoms is confirmed by the combination of low TRIN and high Fb and Fp scores.
Self-reported symptoms are valid (FBS=16), and L scale is within the normal range. The person reports own symptoms in a reasonable way, and her percentage of false answers is average. The person is somewhat exaggerating own problems and pathology (K=52), or experienced confusion or disorientation during the test. The suggestion about “faking bad” is also confirmed by low S score: the person tends to present herself in an unfavorable light.
The person’s health is good, and her concern with illness and disease is reasonable (Scale 1). The person perceives life with certain pessimism and hopelessness; it might be difficult for her to concentrate (Scale 2). She is passive, cautious, avoids confrontations and is very sensitive to criticism. She might experience reactive depression.
The tested person tends to be socially isolated, she is conventional and cynical, and might experience problems getting closer with other people (Scale 3). She tends to alienate from the society, and tends to act out under stress. She is outgoing and impulsive, and might blame others when something is wrong. Others might perceive her as extraverted and active. She is likely to break the law and extensively use alcohol or drugs. Possibly, she was caught demonstrating antisocial behavior, and experiences the feelings of remorse and guilt (both scales 2 and 4 are elevated).
She shares traditional views on gender roles in the society (Scale 5), has balanced interpersonal sensitivity and suspiciousness (Scale 6), does not tend to have unreasonable fears, anxiousness and extensive obsessions (Scale 7). She might be critical of others, and be alert and self-confident. In general, she is adaptable, friendly, conventional and good-natured, and has a realistic world outlook (Scale 8). Her level of energy is low, and her self-confidence is also low (Scale 9). T-score for hypomania is low on non-K-corrected scale, and extremely low on K-corrected scale. This fact, along with elevated scale 2, indicates at depression (Hogan, 2006). She might also feel uncomfortable in the society, and behave as distant and cold person (Scale 0).
Her code-type is 24/42, which means that she has an antisocial personality, and has problems controlling her impulses. She often feels anxiety and guilt due to her impulsive behavior, and is afraid of the external consequences of her actions. There is a high probability of drug abuse or drinking for this code-type. This code-type, along with F-scales and low scale 9 points out at the possibility of a mild adjustment disorder with a depressed mood (Hogan, 2006), aggravated by substance abuse.
It is recommended to check whether external or internal factors are causing the depression of the tested person. It is also recommended to check whether she has criminal history, or history of alcohol or drug abuse. External monitoring might be required (Hogan, 2006). The hypothesis of depression should be checked by more specific tests and contacts with the tested person.
