The Edwards SD scale: A short form of the MMPI?

David Marlowe, Irving I. Gottesman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Edwards has described a rationale for predicting MMPI scores based upon social desirability response bias. The clinical utility of this technique was examined by comparing the predicted average MMPI profile with the average profile actually obtained by college males. The estimated and actual profiles were markedly discrepant, indicating that Edwards' SD scale is not a useful substitute for the MMPI. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
