The study has achieved number of results which are summarized into the following points:
1- The reason behind of students' faking good might be their choice of the option 'false' for most test.
2- The reason behind of students' faking bad might be their choice of the option 'true' for most test.
3- Similarity exists between the profiles' forms of faking good for males and females separately and the other studies which applied a close studies to the current one.
