Throughout this semester their has been many different concepts that we have covered, all of which have been important. However one of the concepts that I believe will stick with me for some time is what we covered in Chapter 9 on Intelligence and IQ testing. While we were going over this chapter in lecture we also covered this topic in discussion. The conversations that we had in discussion have stuck with me thus far and I believe that it will continue to stick with me far into the future. Although I have always found IQ testing and intelligence interesting I find it even more interesting now due to the ideas about how it could be used in hiring processes.
I had never really thought about how IQ testing could be used as part of an interview process. In ways it makes sense as many jobs require certain type of people and as the jobs become more important IQ's can show how one may perform in that job. However I also found it disturbing that people would be tested in such a manner to determine whether or not they are fit for the job. Many people struggle with testing under pressure and many people have qualities that make them suitable for jobs besides their intelligence. Therefore this will stick with me because as I go further into schooling and later into a career I will work hard to express my thoughts and make sure that everyone looks at more than just a cover.
