[Note: This post is just for fun! No need to comment about how these wouldn’t be suitable interview questions or anything like that.] If you’re an employer who is in the process of hiring someone new, you ought to be interested in how conscientious each potential employee is.
I've thought of this question because it is hard to demonstrate conscientiousness. It is why skipping out on college sends a bad signal. I like looking at correlations like this but I would ultimately use something traditional like GPA. How many GPA points would I discount because they guy likes to play poker with his friends? uhhh not much. I doubt applicant pools are that crazy competitive very often.
I thought maybe you could get people to stick a nail under their fingernail or sit in a dark room for hours. I think that might correlate with conscientiousness.
Can similar tests be done for Openness (corresponds to creativity) and Extraversion/Agreeableness (corresponds to PR suitability)?
