Previous research has demonstrated structural similarities in psychopathology across adult and adolescent samples (e.g., Tacket, 2006). A central feature of the MMPI-2-RF and MMPI-A-RF is their hierarchical structure, which link their scales to contemporary models of psychopathology and personality (e.g., Castellanos-Ryan et al., 2016; Kotov et al., 2017). One model that has increased in popularity is the HiTOP model (Kotov et al., 2017), onto which the MMPI-2-RF scales were mapped (Sellbom, 2019). Lee and colleagues (2021) recently examined the internal structure of the MMPI-A-RF RC scales. A five-factor model was identified including internalizing, anhedonia, somatization, externalizing, and psychoticism dimensions. The aim of the present study is to replicate Lee et al.’s findings by examining the internal structure of the MMPI-A-RF RC scales in Korean adolescent normative (n = 1474) and clinical (n = 230) samples. Using the same analytic strategies (parceling technique and EFA with geomin rotation), we will extract five factors to examine whether the five-factor model previously identified is robust in the Korean adolescent samples. If the five-factor model is judged to be inadequate, multiple extraction and rotation methods will be employed to identify an optimal factor model for the Korean samples.
