Viswesvaran, Chockalingam; Ones, Deniz S.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v59 n2 p197-210 Apr 1999
Examined whether individuals could fake their responses to a personality inventory if instructed to do so. Across 51 studies, fakeability did not vary by personality dimension. All the "Big Five" factors were equally fakeable, but faking produced the largest distortions in social desirability scales. Contains 75 references. (SLD)
