ABSTRACT: We examined the effects of warnings and speeding on scale scores and convergent validity of a measure of Conscientiousness in a faking context (N =329). A completely crossed 2 2 experimental design was used in which instructions (no warning or a warning) and speeding (with or without a time limit) were manipulated. No statistically significant effects on scale scores or convergent validity were evidenced for speeding. Warning participants did decrease Conscientiousness scores by almost one standard deviation (d = .91). Warnings also moderated the relationship between self- and observer-ratings of Conscientiousness such that the relationship between self- and observer-ratings was statistically significant and positive in the warned conditions (rpartial = .29, p n = 136), but this same relationship was statistically nonsignificant (rpartial = -.14, p > .05, n = 148) in the unwarned conditions.
