Product Details


Brevity has become a hallmark of the Millon Inventories. Each Millon inventory is designed to obtain the maximum amount of information with a minimum number of items and patient effort. As the need for efficient and accurate differential diagnosis of complex disorders grows, this feature has become increasingly valued.

Millon's theory is closely correlated with DSM™ classification system of personality disorders. This connection increases the diagnostic utility of Millon's instruments for clinicians.

Pearson Remembers Dr. Theodore Millon

Dr. Theodore Millon, author of the Millon Inventories, leading personality theorist, and esteemed colleague and friend of Pearson, passed away on January 29, 2014 at his home in Port Jervis, New York.  He was 85.  Author and architect of the renowned and highly used Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI) and other personality instruments, Dr. Millon's contributions measured far beyond the field of psychology.  Those who knew Dr. Millon will treasure the memory of one who so eloquently taught us that the human mind is a wonderful and mysterious thing.
Having developed seven personality inventories, authored more than 30 books, and founded numerous scientific journals, Dr. Millon was awarded lifetime achievement awards from both the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Foundation. He served as Dean and Scientific Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Personology and Psychopathology until the time of his death.  Most recently, Dr. Millon worked in collaboration with Pearson to lead the development efforts for the MCMI-IV, the forthcoming revision of the MCMI-III.
Dr. Millon's impact to the field of psychology and to those with whom he worked so closely and dearly will be felt for many years to come.  Together with the Institute of Advanced Studies in Personology and Psychopathology, Pearson looks forward to supporting the continuation of Dr. Millon's life work through his instruments.
