Why Do Personality Tests Fail at Selection?

No comments


A newly released book on the history of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has made wave for a round of press questioning the use of personality assessment for HR purposes. Time and again, these critiques tend to fall into one of three broad themes: the tests are biased and discriminatory; they aren’t relevant for the job, or they simply fail to predict performance. However, the questions raised by all these articles seem to make one common error: It’s difficult to distinguish scientifically proven, reliable tools from those that are poor quality.
