TitleParticipant interpretation and performance on common implicit and explicit measures
Abstract"Researchers design assessments of knowledge, memory, personality, and many other
constructs with a particular idea in mind. However, initial purposes of measures are
easily misinterpreted by respondents due to individual variability in response patterns,
which is often the result of inner motives and characteristics. The following paper
examined cases of two implicit and two explicit measures of personality and attitudes,
namely the MMPI-2, IAT, Modern Racism Scale, and NEO PI-R, in order to demonstrate
the multidimensional nature of these types of assessments, and that one type of
measure is not necessarily "better" than another. What follows is a review of literature
concerning applications of these measures, their structure and development, criticisms,
and the influence of respondent (mis)interpretations and (mis)uses on their scores."
