Gary Larson (the Far Side cartoonist) had a great panel a number of years ago that I remember to this day.
There was a picture of an individual with a boot on his head, rubber flotation device, trench coat, and a shotgun. The caption read “Nature’s way of saying don’t touch.”
I received an email today to try an assessment. One of the final lines in the message read as follows:
“…rely on psychological investigations that support the results of the tests based on scales and personality traits and are supported by the standard reliability and validity coefficients required by the EEOC, the Labor Department and the Justice and Civil Service Commission.”
I was not sure what it meant. But my reaction was just like seeing the character in Gary Larsen’s cartoon.
Call those various agencies and ask them what personality traits are supported by their required standard reliability and validity coefficients. Then let me know how those conversations went.
Sometimes it is better to be cautious; enter at your own risk was my thinking.
