One of the most interesting units during the semester was Chapter 9 on Intelligence and IQ testing. I was intrigued with our debate during the discussion section about whether or not IQ testing alone should be used by hiring managers in order to determine a if a candidate is suitable for the position. Here at the University of Minnesota I am planning on majoring in Human Resources and therefore I was able to really apply this discussion to my life. I believe that in the future, working in a human resources department I will remember the concept of IQ and how it can be used to help predict life outcomes. Although, IQ alone would not likely be used when hiring candidates, it can be a good predictor for real world outcomes. For example, our psychology text states, "The correlation between IQ and job performance is higher in more mentally demanding occupations, such as physician or lawyer than in less mentally demanding occupations, like clerk or newspaper delivery person" (333). I believe that in the future, when interviewing or deciding between candidates that IQ is not everything but can be a good predictor for how a persons behaviors and attitudes will be.
