My company is looking into using a behavioral interviewing tool from a company called
<a href="">Execuserve</a>. While I subscribe to the idea that behavior is as important as skills in an employee, I'm not sure I believe that a questionnaire is going to accurately going to gauge the personality of a candidate. What are your experiences with behavioral intervieing?

Throw it into the fire

by stooobeee In reply to Interviewing

Once I handed a great physicist the Stanford Binay Intelligence Test. He looked at it and told me to throw it into the fire. When I asked him why, he said, "If you want something, you just go get it." I reject all attempts to judge someone before his talents are on the table. We absurdly tend to catagorize individuals based on arbitrary evaluations that pigeon hole them into corners without ever extracting their true worth. To determine who someone is requires time and experimentation. People are not objects we label and place into containers; we are far more valuable. If one wants to know what a person is capable of, give him something to do and watch what he does with it. That is the most accurate test!
