For example, if a candidate scores High on the behavioral scales in this assessment and he/she scores Low on Candidness, there is the chance that he was able to elevate his/her scores on the assessment by trying to make him/herself look good. High behavioral scale scores that are accompanied by Low Candidness scores warrants some additional follow-up during the interview or reference checks to confirm the candidate's behavioral scale scores are in line with his/her previous work history.
