Fakability of an Empirically Derived Selection Instrument.
Thornton, George C., III; Gierasch, Paul F., III
Journal of Personality Assessment, v44 n1 p48-51 Feb 1980
Ninety-four college males completed a management trainees' selection test that had been developed by criterion-keying. They were instructed once to answer honestly, and once to answer as a highly motivated job applicant would. "Faking" instructions resulted in significantly higher scores. (Author/GDC)
