Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be candid and accurate in his/her responses and is therefore not trying to outsmart the test in an effort to present him/herself in a more favorable light. The results of this scale should be used as a "red flag" to make you aware that some candidates may be trying to "fake" the test. For example, if a candidate scores High on the behavioral scales in this assessment and he/she scores Low on Candidness, there is the chance that he was able to elevate his/her scores on the assessment by trying to make him/herself look good. High behavioral scale scores that are accompanied by Low Candidness scores warrants some additional follow-up during the interview or reference checks to confirm the candidate's behavioral scale scores are in line with his/her previous work history.
