Malingering describes the act of feigning physical or psychological symptoms for external gain, which may include exaggerating symptoms on psychological testing. Thus, standardized measures are needed to detect malingering and invalid responses for accurate interpretation of test results. This review examines existing literature on the most well-known cognitive and psychiatric malingering measures. Optimal contexts, in terms of population and setting, for each measure are examined, and directions for future research and recommendations discussed.
