Dr. Graham Tyler presented a webinar on Chinese Personality.
In this session we are pleased to present research on and answer questions about whether or not Chinese people are significantly different to other major groups and whether any potential differences are likely to impact upon the ability of personality tests to predict performance at work.
Some HR people in Asia believe that culture plays such a significant role in personality that indigenous personality attributes need to be assessed at recruitment/selection. To this end, personality tests have been developed "in Chinese for the Chinese by the Chinese". A significant question to ask is: Do these tests add any prediction over and above that afforded by mainstream personality tests developed by world renowned experts in the field?
The above questions will be answered through discussion of the trait model of personality and its biological basis. Peer-reviewed and published research conducted by PsyAsia International's award-winning Psychologist, Dr. Graham Tyler; award-winning Dr. Peter Newcombe of the University of Queensland; and world-renowned Professor Paul Barrett, formerly of the University of Auckland will be presented in an easy to understand format.
Questions from attendees along with the answers given by the presenter can be heard in this webinar recording. Please watch free of charge here.
