In "A Conversation about the MMPI with Yossef Ben-Porath and Auke Tellegen" part six (of seven), authors Ben-Porath and Tellegen discuss the future of the MMPI, noting the potential for additional scale development and modernization of item content. The latest published version of the test is the MMPI-A-RF for adolescents. Co-authors with Drs. Ben-Porath and Tellegen are Robert Archer and Richard Handel of Eastern Virginia Medical School. The next version of the test for adults will include a newly collected normative sample.


The video conversation was filmed at Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) in St. Paul, Minnesota in March 2016. The University of Minnesota Press has made the seven video segments available for instructors to use in assessment courses.
