Abstract

A good psychometric test can easily outperform a resume scan and interview at predicting job performance and retention. Yet personality testing and other ways of analyzing potential present some significant challenges: For instance, not all assessments are accurate, and people's personalities vary from moment to moment, often depending on the challenge at hand. We need a finer-grained understanding of human potential.
