Social desirability scores are associated with higher morning cortisol levels in firefighters.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of social desirability (SD) responding ("defensiveness") and cortisol levels. METHODS: Marlowe-Crowne SD scores and morning salivary cortisol were measured in firefighters. RESULTS: SD scores were associated with higher cortisol levels (r=.28) in 60 firefighters under age 45, but not in 25 older firefighters (or the combined sample). CONCLUSION: The results are consistent not only with SD scores being an indicator of coarctation of experience as a coping mechanism, but also (at least for younger persons) perhaps a risk factor for the psychobiological dysfunctions associated with chronic elevations of cortisol.[1]
