RANDOM RESPONDING AND THE QUESTIONNAIRE MEASUREMENT OF PSYCHOTICISM
Abstract:The hypothesis was advanced that questionnaire measures of Psychoticism (P) may represent an estimate of randomness in responding, rather than reflecting reactions to item content. Questionnaire measures of P, Extraversion, Neuroticism, and a Lie score were taken from each of 103 male subjects. The results showed that P did not correlate with measures of random responding which were derived from the remaining scales. Thus, the hypothesis was not supported. Further inspection of the data failed to discover a general trait of random responding.
