Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients have high scores on F and low scores on K scales of MMPI. The higher F scors than K scores show that they overreport their symptoms and problems. 128 subjects in four groups (32 in each group) were selected for the study. The groups included: A) out - patients combatants with PTSD (with mean age of 28) B) combatants without any psychiatric problem (with mean age of 27.6) C) non-military neurotic patients without PTSD (with mean age of 24.5) and D) normal men (with mean age of 27.5). All of the subjects were administered the short form of MMPI (mini mult). Data were analyzed by analysis of variance and Shefe test. The results showed that the first group had high scores on F and low scores on L and K scales. Their Validity scales profiles were similar to those who try to fake bad and exaggerate their problems
