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 . . . . . . .
