       Our research concerns psychometric data coming from the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) test. MMPI is used to count the personality-psychometric dimensions which help specialists in diagnosis of mental diseases. In this paper, we present a part of the Copernicus system – the tool for computer-aided diagnosis of mental diseases based on personality inventories. This part is devoted to the rule-based analysis of the MMPI data expressed in the form of the so-called profiles. The paper characterizes the knowledge base embodied in Copernicus which can be used for the rule-based analysis of the patients’ MMPI data as well as the functionality of the designed tool.
