The Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI; Morey, 1991) is a relatively new personality assessment showing much promise in forensic and correctional settings. The present review examines correlations and effect sizes from a list of studies (n = 17) utilizing the PAI in these areas in order to provide concurrent validity with other psychological measures in the categories of (1) mental and personality disorders, (2) psychopathy, (3) violence potential, (4) suicide potential, and (5) feigning, malingering, or defensiveness. The study indicated that the PAI does evidence moderate correlations in forensic and correctional settings, as well as demonstrate significant concurrent validity with a number of measures currently used in these areas. The PAI appears to have promise as a measure of personality functioning in the forensic and correctional domains.
