ABS 300 -2.4

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapters 11 and 12 in the textbook. There are multiple instruments to measure personality (both objective and projective) that are reviewed in the textbook.   For this discussion, assume the role of a human resources manager tasked with hiring several employees for a newly formed life insurance sales company.   Your job is to interview and hire an accountant and a district manager who will be responsible for supervising 25 employees.  Unfortunately, the company has limited financial resources, so you are only able to use one measure of personality as part of your interview process. In your discussion post, describe the personality measure you selected and thoroughly explain the rationale for your choice.  Identify relevant reliability and validity information about the personality measure you selected and specify how the reliability and validity information supports the applicability of the instrument for each of the above positions. In your rationale be sure to describe the properties and applications of the personality test as they apply to your role in hiring these employees. Identify at least one methodological consideration concerning the reliability and validity of administering the measure you have chosen. In addition to the required reading, research a minimum of one peer-reviewed article from the Ashford University Library to support your choice of subtests.
