The Effect of Social Desirability on the Predictive Validity of Self-Peer Ratings.
Orpen, Christopher
Psychology: A Quarterly Journal of Human Behavior, v16 n4 p47-50 Win 1979
The lack of validity of self-peer rating in selection is due to their "fakeability," and not to the absence of a relation between need for achievement or work motivation and performance; nor is it due to the invalidity of self-peer ratings per se as a measure of these variables. (Author)
