The purpose of the study was to examine the reliability and validity of the Korean version of the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory–IV (MCMI-IV). Data were collected from 990 community and clinical samples. The Korean version of the MCMI-IV exhibited adequate internal consistency and test-retest reliability. An exploratory factor analysis showed that the Korean version of the MCMI-IV has three factors: General maladjustment, emotional instability, and antisocial behavior/impulsivity. We conducted correlation analyses between the Korean version of the MCMI-IV and other conceptually related measures. Additionally, theoretically corresponding scales showed significant positive correlations and the opposite scales had negative associations. These results indicate that the Korean version of the MCMI-IV is a reliable and valid scale to evaluate the personality and clinical syndrome. This inventory may be useful to be used in various clinical settings.
