Abstracts
Over-claiming is the tendency to claim knowledge about nonexistent items. Findings of the previous research suggest that it might serve as a measure of unconscious egoistic bias, one form of socially desirable responding. The aim of this study was to examine the convergent and divergent validity of over-claiming within Paulhus two-tiered model of socially desirable responding. Total of 382 participants filled in the Over-claiming Questionnaire, together with Comprehensive Inventory of Desirable Responding and 300-item International Personality Item Pool inventory, under honesty instructions. Results showed that over-claiming bias indices correlated more with egoistic than moralistic scales. At the same time, contrary to Paulhus’ two-tiered model, they were more strongly correlated with impression management scales, compared to self-enhancement scales. These findings indicate that over-claiming might represent a measure of egoistic bias, while its specification on the process level is yet to be investigated
