Organisations are increasingly turning to integrity testing in an attempt to meet the challenge of international fraud. But cheaters, by their very nature, cheat, creating a need for something a little more devious when carrying out assessments. Integrity tests differ from personality tests in that there are clearly ‘right and wrong answers’. This means that a variety of strategies have to be used to deter respondents from trying to distort their results. This session will review the various approaches to testing integrity within occupational settings as well as some of the integrity traits that have been addressed and the questionnaires that are available to measure them. These include Prudentius’s theory of passions and sentiments, Hogan’s ‘the dark side’, the rather ominously named ‘dark triad’ of Machiavellianism, Paranoia and Narcissism, and the ten personality disorders used within psychiatric diagnosis.
