Example text

The dimensions represented in the MMPI­A were developed through this procedure.  The definitions of cognitive functioning underlying our standard intelligence tests were derived through factor analyses of performance data.  Many of the interview and rating techniques examined in subsequent chapters are based on constructs derived through these empirical procedures.  The different approaches have often yielded very different constructs and even within approaches there are often inconsistencies in the way constructs are defined.

The core of this system is a set of diagnostic categories that define a wide range of pathological behaviors.  The DSM­IV system is examined in more detail later.  Instead of deducing constructs from a theoretical framework, constructs are induced from empirical data.  The dimensions represented in the MMPI­A were developed through this procedure.  The definitions of cognitive functioning underlying our standard intelligence tests were derived through factor analyses of performance data.  Many of the interview and rating techniques examined in subsequent chapters are based on constructs derived through these empirical procedures.

These efforts have derived from applications of learning theory principles to complex human functioning, notably through the earlier theoretical efforts of Bandura (1977, 1986) and Rotter (1982).  Researchers working within this approach have generally been concerned less with the dynamics behind behaviors than have those working within the traditional personality trait approach. For example, instead of attempting to analyze the underlying dynamics behind aggressive behaviors, the concern in this case would be describing the pattern of aggressive behavior exhibited by the individual, the circumstances under which these behaviors occurred, and, perhaps, the cognitions associated with the behaviors.
