This book covers how these visions are central to our understanding of human behaviour, as inherently goal driven. It covers these concepts both scientifically and practically, exploring both impact on behaviour, as well as a guide on how to use Futureselves for self-knowledge and self-improvement. Futureselves brings together a long history of tel...
Article
Generalizability theory (G theory) continues to be underutilized in applied psychological research, both in New Zealand and internationally, possibly due to uncertainties about the types of questions that it can be used to address. G theory and its associated random effects model basis is often positioned as an approach limited to the study of reli...

This article critiques the common use of principles of classical test theory (CTT) as the key means of assessing the effectiveness of career instruments for employment counseling. The authors argue that excessive reliance on CTT has hindered the development of career assessment tools that better meet the diverse and changing needs of those seeking...

Needs-based assessment (NBA) was developed in New Zealand to assess job seekers’ capacity, willingness, and opportunity to find work.

A Critical Examination of the Internal Consistency of Competencies Assessed Across Multiple Methods – Corrigendum - Volume 5 - Paul Englert, Duncan J. R. Jackson, Marco van Gelderen
Article
Full-text available
Competency models represent a popular concept that is widely applied in such areas as human resource selection, performance management, employee development, and job analysis. Despite widespread popularity and applied use, little is known about the measurement properties of competencies and whether they can reasonably be used to provide meaningful...
Article
Full-text available
Task-based assessment centres (TBACs) have been suggested as a viable approach to evaluation in employment scenarios. Despite such suggestions, little or no empirical evidence exists on the relationship between TBAC scores and work outcomes. A sample of managers in a New Zealand service company participated in a TBAC used for organizational diagnos...
Article
Task-based assessment centers (TBACs) have been suggested to hold promise for practitioners and users of real-world ACs. However, a theoretical understanding of this approach is lacking in the literature, which leads to misunderstandings. The present study tested aspects of a systems model empirically, to help elucidate TBACs and explore their inne...
Article
A. R. Andreasen's (1995) social marketing model (SMM) is applied to structure feedback counseling for individuals who are unemployed. The authors discuss techniques used in commercial marketing and how they are equally applicable to solving societal problems; SMM and its application to social interventions; and structured feedback that moves a pers...
Article

This study investigates the negative relationship between fluid and crystallised intelligence and Conscientiousness subfactors within the New Zealand workplace. Fluid and crystallised intelligence were assessed via the General Reasoning Test Battery 2 (GRT2; N = 1629). Two personality inventories were employed: The Fifteen-Factor Questionnaire (15F...
Article

Perspectives from 22 countries on aspects of the legal environment for selection are presented in this article. Issues addressed include (a) whether there are racial/ethnic/religious subgroups viewed as "disadvantaged," (b) whether research documents mean differences between groups on individual difference measures relevant to job performance, (c)...
Article
Full-text available
Self versus assessor behavioural ratings from 214 participants were investigated along with psychometric measures in a development centre. Using cluster analysis, it was shown that sub-groups of self-raters could be established without the need to use commonly criticized difference scores. Four clusters of self-rater were identified in this analysi...
Article
Full-text available
There is a range of theories that have been developed to describe leadership. The application of these theories is often hindered by both their complexity and the knowledge required by Human Resource practitioners to effectively implement a leadership model to solve organisational issues. Pragmatic leadership models must, therefore, be practical an...
Article
Full-text available
Research indicates that there are differences in personality traits between ethnic groups and between countries. This research has not, however, included a New Zealand sample. The current study examined personality differences between respondents from three New Zealand ethnic groups (546 New Zealand Europeans, 102 Maori and 78 Pacific Islanders), a...
Article
Full-text available
Given the widespread use of cognitive ability tests for employment selection in New Zealand, and overseas evidence of substantial ethnic group differences in cognitive ability test scores, a study was conducted to examine the extent to which cognitive test score distributions differ as a function of ethnicity within a New Zealand sample. An examina...
Article
Full-text available
Similar themes related to the concept of adaptability and well-being psychology include long-term perspective, relationships, self-development, and future focus. These themes may be combined into the construct of "possible selves," which links well-being and career development. (SK)
Article
Full-text available
Discusses the application of self-theory to personnel selection. Suggests that the omission of self-theory in personality testing accounts for the low predictive validity of such tests. Argues that the implicit theory underlying personality tests is that the self is stable over time and place. Presents alternative theories of the self and provides...
Article
Full-text available
Decades of psychological work have previously postulated that an accurate perception of reality is a necessary requirement of good mental health. More recently, the notion of accurate cognitions as a prerequisite of well-being has been challenged, replaced by the proposition that illusory rather than accurate perceptions are responsible for well-be...
