Summary or Abstract : Self-report psychological tests have potential for providing meaningful information about individuals and groups in educational and employment settings. Unfortunately, the usefulness of information obtained by administering tests is potentially negated by Socially Desirable Responding (SDR). This research examined evidence for SDR, as measured on the Impression Management scale of the 16PF fifth edition , in new seminary students who responded to required psychological testing. When compared to the general population mean for this parameter, the sample group scored significantly higher ( t = 2.747, p = .008, two-tailed). A number of personalogical variables were also examined for this sample group in order to form a prediction model for SDR. Multiple regression analysis of these variables produced a prediction model that included the following variables: Stress score on the Life Events Questionnaire , score on the 16PF Emotional Stability (C) scale, Score on the 16PF Abstractedness (M) scale, score on the 16PF Tension (Q4) scale, and score on the Fidelity to Tasks and Persons scale of the Profiles of Ministry I instrument (R 2 = .429, R 2 adj = .388, F(5, 71) = 10.653, p < .001). These findings indicate a higher rate of SDR among seminary students as a result of the under-reporting of socially undesirable characteristics. Notably absent from the prediction model was the 16PF Rule-Consciousness (G) scale. The absence of this scale, strongly correlated with SDR in the general population, suggests that over-reporting of socially desirable characteristics does not contribute to SDR in the study population..
