A sample of participants (N=197), recruited from Amazon MTurk, completed an online personality assessment. Participants entered either a faking group, that promised greater rewards based on high scores, or a non-faking group, that rewarded participants the same regardless of responses. During the exam, participants were randomly assigned to a warning condition, either receiving or not receiving a warning, in order to determine the effects of warning non-fakers. Results were non-significant, but examination of interaction plots suggests non-fakers tend to lower their scores when warned.
This research was supported by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
