Age affects on response patterns to the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory have been recognized by the creation of separate norms for adolescent, adults and aged adults. This study examined the effects of age within a normal Army adult male population on MMPI response pattern. Of the validity and clinical scales only scales L, 3 Hysteria and 5 Masculinity- Feminity showed no significant age effects. Scale means and percentage of respondents scoring above 70T non-K-corrected Minnesota Adult Norms across age groups both showed scale age clusters which substantiate the need for age appropriate norms within the adult Army male population.
