Abstract

Scored undergraduates for resistance to interference according to their results on the Stroop Color-Word Test and then classified the Ss into 3 groups on the basis of their MMPI profiles. Results of analyses support the hypothesis that resistance to interference, as measured by the Stroop Test, is related to psychopathology and indicate that behavioral tests can be of use to the clinician in understanding and predicting behavior.
