Abstract:Compared with scores obtained under standard directions, instructions to fake an “awful personality” on the Eysenck Personality Inventory produced significant increases in neuroticism and extraversion. An explanation for the unexpected increment in extraversion in terms of the multi-factor composition of the E scale is discussed.
