Locally developed psychometric tests which purport to assess
"indigenous" aspects of Chinese Personality were
found to be less reliable than reputable internationally
developed tests of personality. Furthermore, there is a
big question as to whether so-called "indigenous"
traits are Chinese-specific. Issues such as traditionalism
or face also exist in other cultures! Moreover, the research
has demonstrated that whatever we choose to believe about
Chinese Personality, locally developed (Hong Kong) tests
of "indigenous" personality add nothing to the
prediction of performance at work that is not already accounted
for by reputable internationally developed tests. We present
this research in a free
HRM webinar which you can watch here.
Thank you for your interest in our project.
PsyAsia International continues to research ability and personality
assessments, their reliability and validity within local Asian
contexts. We're particularly interested in hearing from decision-makers
in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia who would be interested
in getting their organizations involved in this research.
We need large numbers (100+) of participants and usually would
be looking to administer one or more of our questionnaires
and collect some kind of performance of other criterion data.
