Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


What are you? What essentially combines you? How do I differ from you? In basic: is it possible to test all of this into a compressed result of all the complexities that define the human personality? Through time Psychology has been asking this question and psychometricians have been trying through personality assessments, to execute that exact question. Hence this, we intend to challenge that practice in today's recruitment procedures. To do so, we will try to use deconstruction through the eyes of Phillip J. Rosenbaum & Jaan Valsiner’s Black box analogy. On that behalf, we look into the use of Paul T. Costa & Robert R. McCrae’s Neo Personality-Inventory-Revised (NEO PI-R). By doing so, we shed a new light on the use of personality tests in today's recruitment. This paper establishes, that personality tests have a function. Those functions have consequences. These consequences can be seen through implications which alters the moment of recruitment.
