Biased responding has been identified as a significant factor in social psychological research. In addition to self-perceptions, this phenomenon appears to extend to beliefs regarding one's spouse and marriage as defined by the construct of marital aggrandizement. Results of the current study support the assertion that marital aggrandizement is a significant and distinct mode of biased responding. Participants presenting as biased responders appear to differ in terms of the trait of neuroticism, personal efficacy and perceived interpersonal control. Limitations of the use of the Internet as a means of data collection are considered.
