The Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scales (GSS 1 & 2) can illustrate why interviewees yield to pressure from interrogators. Variations of the GSS procedure can help isolate individual factors contributing to interrogative suggestibility. Induced malingering is one variation, instructing participants to ‘fake bad’ on the GSS. The present study used this method in an attempt to reconcile the conflicting findings of previous malingering studies.
