Sažetak
Some research clearly showed that faking reduces the construct validity of personality questionnaires, whilst many other showed no such effect. A possible explanation for mixed results could be searched for in a variety of methodological strategies in forming comparative groups supposed to differ in the level of faking: candidates vs. non-candidates ; groups of individuals with high vs. low social desirability score ; and groups given instructions to respond honest vs. instructions to “fake good”. All the three strategies can be criticized for addressing the faking problem indirectly – assuming that comparative groups really differ in the level of response distortion, which might not be true. Therefore, in a within-subject design study we examined how faking affects the construct validity of personality inventories using a direct measure of faking. The results suggested that faking reduces the construct validity of personality questionnaires gradually – the effect was stronger in the subsample of participants who distorted their responses in greater extent.
