The University of Minnesota Press invited MMPI-2-RF co-authors Tellegen and Ben-Porath to have a videotaped "conversation" about the test in the context of the development of all the MMPI instruments. Beginning with the original MMPI, authors Tellegen and Ben-Porath discuss the rationale for developing the tests and describe the major features of each. Informal professional biographies of Auke Tellegen and Starke Hathaway, whom author Tellegen knew well, are offered through lively anecdote by Professor Tellegen. The authors conclude their conversation by looking to the future of the MMPI and personality assessment, in general.
