The utility of MMPI subtle, obvious scales for detecting fake good and fake bad response sets


, : The utility of MMPI subtle, obvious scales for detecting fake good and fake bad response sets. Journal of Clinical Psychology 45(4): 575-583

The MMPI was administered twice to 40 graduate students to determine the utility of the Weiner subtle and obvious scales (D, HY, PD, PA, MA) for estimating how fake good and fake bad response sets might influence full scale scores. The first time, the MMPI was administered under standard conditions. Subjects then were divided randomly into two groups: fake good (complete MMPI for job application) and fake bad (qualify for psychotherapy). There were significant multivariate test effects (standard vs. response set) for the raw scores of all five obvious, subtle, and full scales. However, when raw scores were converted to T scores to ascertain practical significance, the obvious scales appeared to provide the most useful information to enhance the interpretation of full scale scores in normal populations.
