The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) is a briefer revision of the MMPI-2. The archived MMPI-2 profiles of 214 evangelical missionaries seeking psychological services were analyzed in order to explore the relationship among the MMPI-2-RF newly constructed interpersonal scales, the RC scales, and missionary distress. Missionary husbands and wives were placed into two groups based on marital types (conflicted and non-conflicted) and again into three groups based on clinical presenting problems (marital, family, and non-family distress). The results lend support to the use of the MMPI-2-RF SHY, IPP, and FML interpersonal scales along with the RC4 scale in screening missionary marital distress. Recommendations for counselors and missionary boards are discussed.
