A factor analytical study of assessment center ratings and personality variables
The 16PF personality variables were examined in order to determine if any of the variables predicted assessment center ratings. Two hundred nineteen first level managers of a Fortune 100 company were assessed in 10 dimensions. A factcr analysis of the assessment center dimensions resulted in three underlying assessment center constructs: assertiveness, sensitivity, and administration. Intercorrelation multiple regression techniques were used with the three assessment center factors as the criterion and the 16 primary 16PF personality variables as the predictors. The results suggest that cognitive and interpersonal personality variables can predict assessment center ratings and the three underlying assessment center constructs.
