dc.description.abstractResponse bias has been defined as a tendency to select a particular answer category when certainty about the correct choice is lacking. It has been demonstrated that academic examinations, personality tests, attitude measures, and interest inventories are all vulnerable to the invalidating effects of response bias. This study sought to investigate the vulnerability of the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory to response bias. It was discovered that: (1) overuse of the "Like", "Indifferent", or "Dislike" answer categories would produce invalid profile patterns and (2) subjects who lack knowledge about items composing the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory may bias their responses in a fashion that renders profile patterns questionable.en
