Abstract

The MMPI profiles of 77 female patients seen at a private pain clinic were subjected to hierarchical clustering. Quantitatively, four of the resulting five clusters were very similar to those previously reported by Prokop, Bradley, Margolis, and Gentry (1980). At the same time, the results were also consistent with the theoretical approach taken by Sternbach (1974).
