Prior theory and research have suggested that self‐disclosure may have a curvilinear relationship with psychological disturbance. The present study investigated the hypothesis using the CPI, MMPI, and Bipolar Psychological Inventory and employing Ss (N = 28) from a correctional institution. Analyses involved correlational, multiple regression and discriminant analysis techniques. The results offer partial support for the hypothesis and add substantially to the external validity of prior research.
