Comments on the article by J. N. Butcher et al (see record <RelatedUID>2003-06151-006</RelatedUID>). The authors state that Butcher et al misunderstand the Fake Bad Scale (FBS) and make naive, inaccurate assumptions about malingering. Their reasoning and methodology do not support their conclusions. Their methodology and reporting are very unusual for a research study. Not even basic descriptive statistics were reported, for example, means, standard deviations, or ranges. Five of their six samples were not in the setting for which the FBS was designed, and only one--their smallest sample--was personal injury litigants.
