Deniz S. Ones, University of Minnesota
Click here to view further details and author bios.
This workshop will first present an overview of contemporary personality theories and taxonomies, including the Pan Hierarchical Five Factor Model, Cybernetic Big Five, and the Whole Trait Theory. We will then focus on two main questions: (1) How can practitioners best measure and utilize personality to support employment decisions?, and (2) What are important considerations in measuring personality in applied settings? Empirical research and illustrative examples will address predictive validity, faking, group differences, and fairness. Workshop participants will gain an understanding of (1) the ever expanding variety of methods to assess personality (e.g., SJTs, simulations, text mining, unobtrusive sensors); and (2) a variety of bright side and dark side traits (e.g., integrity, proactivity, the dark triad). Participants will also acquire the knowledge needed to independently evaluate and deploy suitable personality assessment systems in their organizations.

The workshop will include a discussion of different response formats and the pros and cons of using video-based versus live simulations.
