    I saw this and thought I'd post it as at least a few of us are interested in the idea that questionnaire results may not be fully representative of reality.

    Results aren't that clear cut here, so not that exciting I suppose.

    Thanks. I read this a few days ago (not thoroughly though). I was a bit unsure of the implications of the results too. People are less likely to try to hide mental health problems than is thought? But it still could be a problem? I decided not to put much work in to it.

    That's what I picked up from the abstract anyway.
