The purpose of this study is to report the findings concerning the comparative diagnostic value of two personality tests, the Bell Adjustment Inventory (Student form) and the Minnesota Personality Scale, for use in student counseling. The Bell Adjustment Inventory has been used for the past six years as a part of the battery of tests given during New Student Days at Grinnell College, with apparently satisfactory results. However, with the development of the new Minnesota Personality Scale, it was felt by the college personnel department that perhaps this test would prove of even greater diagnostic value in the counseling program.
