Hello! Please remember that my response is for information only, we are not establishing a therapeutic relationship.
It looks like they might be concerned about your S scale. Your T score on the S (stands for Superlative Self Presentation) was a 72, which in a range of 70-74, "may" be indicative of an invalid profile. However, a high S is usually looked at in conjunction with a high TRIN, and your TRIN is within the normal range.
The S scale looks at 5 factors: 1. Belief in human goodness 2. Serenity, 3. Contentment with life, 4. Patience and denial of irritability and anger 5. Denial of moral flaws.
A high S usually indicates defensiveness, underreporting, and an attempt to proclaim an overly positive presentation.
You do have a high K as well (67) which K looks at the tendency to control and limit disclosure of distress, discomfort, and problems relating to others, denying problems,
reluctant to admit symptoms; more sophisticated/subtle defensiveness.
But again, a high TRIN would give much more support to an invalid profile, and you don't have that. Your K is significant, but it's at the low end of significance, where most college graduates score.
Your scale 4 (PD) is significantly elevated (67) --and I'm wondering if that's what they mean by you "not matching your profile" --Do you mean that they said that your validity scores don't match your profile? It could be that because you look defensive in your answers (based on the S and K scales) that they believe that your PD is actually suppressed --that's just a theory ---
I've seen people get rejected from Police Depts. for a high PD before.
The PD scale has to do with issues with authority, family discord, social and societal alienation.
Upon examining your sub-scores of the overall PD scale, you only had one elevation on the 5 subscores which was:
Pd2-Authority problems: (77)
resentment of societal and parental standards and
customs, definite opinions about what's right/wrong, stand up for own beliefs, admit to having been in trouble in school or with law.
All of the other 4 subscales were within the normal range.
I am wondering 2 things:
1. Are you a religious person? Religious people often look more defensive than other people.
2. If yes, I'm wondering if that in combination with your past history of getting in trouble with the law has caused the elevation on PD2 as well as the validity scales.
I don't see how re-taking the test is helpful --especially three times! Unless you were misunderstanding the questions (which you say you weren't) that's not going to help -
I've done some "re-evaluations" for some candidates where I got to do a more complete evaluation and write my opinion about their MMPI2 results. Do you have that option?
I recommend that you ask for it. If another Psychologist can do a more thorough evaluation and see if there are reasonable explanations for your score elevations.
I hope that helps --and I too am sorry that you are experiencing this block to your career goals.
