Abstract

Recent research suggests that the most successful procedures for assessing deception should be those that focus on the specific context of a particular deception attempt and on the particular deception strategy used by the respondent within that context. This article describes the development and validation of 4 scales to assess 2 different strategies for faking-bad (symptom overendorsement and erroneous psychiatric stereotype) and 2 different strategies for faking-good (endorsement of superior adjustment and endorsement of excessive virtue), on the basis of items of the Psychological Screening Inventory (PSI). Cross-validation data for the scales include respondents in real-life deception situations, simulation data, and patterns of correlations with the regular PSI scales.
