One hundred Romanian policemen completed the Romanian MMPI-2. We compared the validity and clinical scale scores of this sample to those of 395 male policemen from the United States. Statistical and clinical differences were found on Fake Bad, Depression, Mania, and Social Introversion. Although free of pathology, Romanian police were more idiosyncratic, depressed, energetic, and introverted than American officers. We discuss these results in terms of differences in age and experience between Romanian and American policemen, differences between Romanian and American police forces and their roles, and differences between Romanian and American society and culture.
