I wouldn't use that term, if I were a psychologist. It sounds like it's some kind of a permanent thing. I'd probably use something like, "lack of resilience; deficient coping skills," because that's exactly what it is--you are encountering/have encountered situations you don't have the emotional/cognitive equipment to deal with; and because such skills can be learned, it most certainly is not a permanent condition.


I would have to agree. I found a book online that gave the interpretations for the various codes and it contained equally poor language, so I didn't post it. One of the codes described a person a "whiny". I guess it can be argued, but I believe that when you describe a person's personality traits, it's best to describe them with more objective terms.

But then again, I'm not a clinical psychologist. :lol:

I see my therapist on monday and I'm hoping she has some interpretive guides to help me out.

I'm vary encouraged after seeing my therapist. she doesn't know the welsh codes because she doesn't work with the MMPI-2 but she said I'm not a hypochondriac and my frailty has decreased and my self-awareness has increased significantly over the past year. she's not surprised the scales are elevated, though, because of my history as a domestic and cult abuse victim.

so I feel OK :)
