Personality Assessment and Diagnosis

For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources and consider the BEMIS Personality Report Sample and if this type of assessment is reflective of personality.

Post by Day 4 a reflection of the potential impact of results from the BEMIS Personality Report think about how the results from this type of assessment may or may not be reflective of personality. Then, post one possible benefit and one possible risk of using personality assessment results to inform diagnosis. Then, explain one possible benefit and one possible risk of using projective assessment results to inform diagnosis. Research the Internet and Walden Library for a peer reviewed journal article that supports your response.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
