Descriptions:

For use with both typical and troubled teens.

The Millon Adolescent Personality Inventory (MAPI) is normed on both normal adolescents and adolescent patients. The inventory outlines three distinct scale dimensions: personality styles, expressed concerns, and behavioral patterns.

How to Use This Test

The MAPI can be used for diagnosis and treatment planning in clinical, correctional, and educational settings by psychologists, psychiatrists, and school counselors, as well as other mental health and guidance professionals.

Key Features

  • Most adolescents can complete the test in 20–30 minutes, helping to reduce resistance to test-taking.
