THE DUAL NATURE OF THE EPQ LIE SCALE? A STUDY AMONG UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN ISRAEL
Abstract:A series of earlier studies, conducted in England, Australia and the USA has suggested that the EPQ lie scale contains two empirically distinct components, one functioning partly as an index of socially conforming behavior and the other functioning as a purer index of lying or dissimulation less contaminated by social conformity. The present study among a sample of 190 Hebrew speaking Israeli students fails to confirm these earlier findings. The conclusion is drawn that the lie scale may function somewhat differently in different cultural contexts.
