Summary or Abstract : Scope of Study. Previous research in the area of test construction has elicited ongoing controversy with regard to the respective merits of intuitive and empirically derived personality inventories. In particular, controversy has centered around the production of "subtle" items which are inherent in empirical tests. Evidence in favor of the more face-valid, intuitive approach to construction has been gathered in the form of findings that more "obvious" test items are apparently the better predictors of actual subject behavior under normal testing circumstances. The present study attempted to measure the utility of subtle and obvious items in terms of behavioral prediction under faking test conditions. In the initial phase of the experiment, subjects completed the MMPI and a 29-item nonconformity scale. One hundred-one MMPI items which correlated significantly with the nonconformity scale were then rated for apparent relationship to pathology. From these items a scale (designated PdX) was constructed which consisted of 21 subtle and 21 obvious items. Subtle and obvious subscores on PdX, as well as on the original MMPI Pd scale, were then compared for differential correlation with the nonconformity scale. It was hypothesized that for both PdX and Pd the obvious items would represent the better behavioral predictor under control conditions. However, it was hypothesized that the subtle items would correlate more positively with the criterion under both fake-good and fake-bad conditions..
