The M-FASTTM is a brief 25-item screening interview that provides preliminary information regarding the probability that an individual is feigning psychiatric illness. The scales operationalize response styles and interview strategies that have been demonstrated to successfully identify individuals who are attempting to feign psychopathology: Reported vs. Observed Symptoms (RO), Extreme Symptomatology (ES), Rare Combinations (RC), Unusual Hallucinations (UH), Unusual Symptom Course (USC), Negative Image (NI), and Suggestibility (S).
