Personality can be a powerful predictor of educational, life, and employment outcomes. The assessment of personality is efficiently done through self-report
measurement but this method has a number of potential contaminants such as faking.

Traditionally, faking on self-report has been assessed through the use of lie scales but lie scales have their own limitations. In this talk, I will describe some more recent methods for the detection of faking. These include the use of response latencies and the examination of response patterns.

For response patterns, Holden will describe variations that focus both on general trends in responding and on the homogeneity of responding. Directions for future research will also be discussed.

Ronald Holden is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Queen’s University. His research has three primary areas of focus: a) suicide; (b) strategies for constructing inventories of personality and psychopathology; and (c) methods for detecting faking on self-report inventories. His research has been published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, Frontiers in Psychology, among others.
