VALIDATION OF THE SDS-17 MEASURE OF SOCIAL DESIRABILITY BIAS IN THE AMERICAN CONTEXT
Allyson S. Graf, B.A.1, Brian F. Blake, Ph.D.1, Jillian Hughes, M.A. 2, Kimberly A. Neuendorf, Ph.D.3
In Germany, Stober and Colleagues (1999, 2001) presented evidence for the validity of the SDS-17, a new measure of “social desirability bias,” i.e. distorted self report of responses that present oneself in a socially attractive manner. Measures of the magnitude of this bias may be dependent upon the cultural surrounding, however. Three experiments (n=800) assessed the SDS-17’s validity in the USA environment. In all conditions in all three studies, SDS-17 scores correlated highly with scores . . . . . . .
