Abstract: Despite the need for assessment of malingered cognitive impairments in forensic psychiatric evaluations, few researchers have investigated the accuracy of these measures outside of civil psycholegal contexts. A critical empirical issue is whether genuine psychiatric patients risk misclassification as malingerers due to severity of symptoms or low intelligence. In the current study, a sample of 93 genuinely responding forensic psychiatric patients completed the BPRS-E, WASI, TOMM, VIP-V, FIT, and DCT. Results indicate that performance on the cognitive malingering measures was not associated with severity of psychiatric symptoms. However, level of intelligence significantly impacted scores and classification accuracy.
