Multiphasic Sex Inventory II - Adult Female Form
The MSI II Adult Female Form is designed to measure the sexual characteristics of an adult female alleged
to have committed a sex offense or sexual misconduct and can be used both to do a sex deviance evaluation and also
to measure treatment progress. It can be useful in evaluation a client who has been alleged to have engaged in
sexual misconduct but who denies any such behavior.
Description and Scales
The MSI II Adult Female Form utilizes most of the same scales as the adult male MSI II. For example,
in the Referral and Information section there are indices that identify the client's endorsement of accusations,
admissions and detention as well as a suicide measure and sex knowledge. Response set measures include two test
consistency and four validity measures. Paraphilia assessment includes Child Molest, Rape, Exhibitionism,
Voyeurism and Obscene Call as well as indices such as Pornography, Prostitution, Fetishism, Bondage/Discipline,
Sadism and Masochism. There are Sex Disorder and Body Image indices and important psychosexual scales regarding
Social/Sexual Inadequacies, Emotional Neediness and Cognitive Distortion/Immaturity. Several behavioral scales
are included and four important accountability measures are provided. There is treatment information and a social
history section which includes a Victimization history.
The MSI II Adult Female Form data was collected for 60 "normal" females, 60 female sex offenders and 60
non-admitting (but guilty) female sex offenders from throughout most regions of the United States. The
MSI II was normed from this sample and a select number of internal consistency coefficients were

scoring and interpretation service is presently available for those qualified clinicians who wish to begin taking
advantage of the enhancements included in the MSI II. A clinician tests the client in their setting and sends
the completed answer sheets to Nichols & Molinder Assessments, Inc. The results are then sent back as a 2 to 3 page
report of the findings and a comprehensive four page profile form that can be used
in a clinical interview, report writing, treatment planning, assessing treatment progress etc. For information on
