Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. The MMPI-2 is considered one of the most valid personality measurements on the market, but the test has 560 items on it, not 370 items, so I am not sure what test you were given. Also the MMPI-2 is meant to help aid in diagnosis and treatment, I am not sure how it can help aid in the reconciliation of one's marriage. Maybe these are the questions the other doctor had regarding this test. But overall this test is empirically valid and reliable
He would score the test at 370 and then make a decision to give the rest depending on the score? Well i can tell you right there that alone makes the test invalid and unreliable. The MMPI-2 must be given in full for it to be valid and reliable. I have used it to determine custody, but only in cases where the fitness of the parent is in question.
As for the other test, it is called a Sentence Completion Test and this is a projective test that is often open to interpretation and has been shown to be unreliable and lacking validity due to wide interpretations that can be made. I personally do not like projective tests as I have found them to not be useful at all
I hope this helps to provide you some guidance on this issue. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns as I would be happy to continue assisting you regarding this issue.
