Abstract

It has been recently suggested that scores on Dr. Janet Taylor's Manifest Anxiety Scale (6) may be influenced by a favorability factor. This factor involves the social evaluation of an item by a subject and his attempt to answer the item in such a manner as to place himself in a socially favorable light. Such a response set may cause a subject to select an item, not only for its adequacy as a description of himself, but also because it may make him look well.
