Acceptance of Bogus Personality Interpretations: Face Validity Reconsidered.
Jackson, Donald E.; And Others
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v38 n3 p588-92 Jul 1982
Tested college students (N=153) with one of four personality tests differing in face validity. Subjects received either a bogus interpretation (Barnum) or negative interpretation (Prosecuting Attorney). Barnum feedback was judged more accurate and likeable. Females had higher accuracy scores. Results confirmed findings relative to face validity and Barnum feedback. (Author/JAC)
