Harland, Lynn K.
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v14 n3 p285-301 Fall 2003
Leadership development students were randomly assigned to complete a personality questionnaire either as a normative test (n=85), forced-choice (n=84), or forced-choice with explanation of its benefits (n=86). Forced-choice-only takers perceived it as less accurate, useful, and respectful. Explanations influenced only perceptions of control, not accuracy, usefulness, or respectfulness.
