Are there any lie or social desirable questions in the IPIP pool of 2600 question?
Can I construct psychometrically such a scale if it does not exists by default?

There are IPIP self-deception and impression management scales presumably modelled on the similarly named Paulhus scales (reliabilities in brackets):
+ keyed Always know why I do things. Just know that I will be a success. Know that my decisions are correct. Feel comfortable with myself. Like to take responsibility for making decisions. – keyed Am not always honest with myself. Sometimes have trouble making up my mind. Dislike myself. Worry about what people think of me. Have a low opinion of myself.
+ keyed Would never take things that aren't mine. Would never cheat on my taxes. Believe there is never an excuse for lying. Always admit it when I make a mistake. Rarely talk about sex. Return extra change when a cashier makes a mistake. Try to follow the rules. Easily resist temptations. Tell the truth. Rarely overindulge. – keyed Have sometimes had to tell a lie. Use swear words. Use flattery to get ahead. Am not always what I appear to be. Break rules. Cheat to get ahead. Don't always practice what I preach. Misuse power. Get back at others. Am likely to show off if I get the chance.
