The MMPI profiles of 40 suicidal & 40 non-suicidal male and female depressed patients, matched for age, were compared. Differences between MMPI scale T scores which showed some sex specificity were found between the suicidal & non-suicidal depressives. However neither individual scale T scores, derived discriminant functions, nor actuarial or cluster analysis-derived MMPI profiles could discriminate between suicidal & non-suicidal depressed inpatients of either sex.
