For the past number of years, in attempting to diagnose maladjustment, psychologists have made and used a great number of tests. These tests have ranged from the simple question-answer test up to complicated projective tests. In any personality test an inescapable question is its validity. Especially is this question important in the so-called personality inventories where the person taking the test merely answers yes or no to a number of questions about himself. In this stuation it is easy to see how a person could, if he wished, make himself appear to be "better" than he actually is.
