This chapter discusses the most commonly used instruments for assessing competency to stand trial, their vulnerability to feigning, and attempts and approaches to remedying this deficiency. In contrast, general clinical measures such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Inventory–2, the Minnesota Multiphasic Inventory–Restructured Form, and the Personality Assessment Inventory are both well-armed and well-researched as self-report validity tests. Each has multiple validity indexes and scales, including those that are not included in the publisher’s scoring services. The rationale and research regarding these indices are reviewed, with emphasis on studies involving criminal defendants, and recommended cutoff cutoff scores, with associated diagnostic statistics, are provided.
