Abstract

How can one make both a false-negative and a valid-positive identification simultaneously? This can result either by identifying an injured individual who is also exaggerating deficit simply as a malingerer, or by identifying that same individual only as injured. In the first instance one misses the injury while correctly identifying malingering, and in the second instance one correctly identifies the injury but misses malingering.
