Effectively identify individuals 16+, who distort their responses during assessments.
PDS - Paulhus Deception Scales Manual

Overview

The Paulhus Deception Scales (PDS) is a self-report instrument that identifies individuals who, when responding to assessments and rating scales, distort their responses. Designed to be administered concurrently with other instruments, the PDS has been used to successfully identify individuals who might have distorted their responses when completing other clinical and/or personality diagnostic instruments.

Key Features:
  • Assesses socially desirable responding both as a response set and a response style
  • Contains 40 items that use contemporary, gender-neutral language
  • Backed by extensive empirical confirmation of reliability and validity, and is appropriate for both clinical and nonclinical samples
  • May also be used in educational and human resource settings and can provide an index for comparing the power of different administration conditions to elicit desirable responding
  • Useful in instrument development and evaluation
  • Online scoring provides instantly generated reports with statistical, textual, and graphical interpretations of a respondent’s results
