The usefulness of assessing suggestibility and compliance in prisoners with unidentified intellectual disabilities

Scandinavian Journal of Psychology. Volum 51, 434–438 | 2010


This present study explored the relationship of interrogative suggestibility (n = 133) and compliance (n = 118) to intellectual functioning among prison
inmates. The Norwegian versions of the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scale (GSS) and the Gudjonsson Compliance Scale (GCS) were used. The results supported
previous findings of a negative correlation between the Gudjonsson scales and IQ, and the scales were found useful throughout the IQ range. The
impact of a memory artifact was discussed in the light of recent studies and criticism of the scales.
