Arbisi, P. A., & Butcher, J. N. (2004). Failure of the FBS to predict malingering of somatic symptoms: Response to critiques by Greve and Bianchini and Lees Haley and Fox. Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, 19(3), 341-345.

Responds to the comments made by Greve and Bianchini (2004) and Lees-Haley and Fox (2004) on the authors' paper (see record 2003-06151-006) cautioning against the use of the MMPI-2 Fake Bad Scale (FBS). The authors state that after a careful reading of the Lees-Haley and Fox and the Greve and Bianchini (2004) comments, their opinion remains unchanged with respect to the relative merit of the FBS as a useful MMPI-2 validity indicator. Nonetheless, the authors address several points raised by the two critiques and correct basic misconceptions presented in those critiques regarding the construction and validation of MMPI-2 scales for the detection and identification of malingering.
