Intuition-based decisions when hiring : A study of intuition, personality and emotional intelligence (English)
Abstract [sv]

I rekryteringsförfarande fattas det dagligen beslut om vilka kandidater som är bäst lämpande för specifika tjänster. Forskning visar att standardiserade arbetsmetoder inom rekrytering har högt prediktivt värde som kan förutsäga individers framtida prestationer. Trots detta föredrar många yrkesutövare intuitionsbaserade arbetsmetoder. Syftet med den föreliggande studien var att undersöka sambandet mellan personlighet, emotionell intelligens och inställning till att använda sig av intuition vid rekryteringsbeslut. Vid insamling av empirisk data konstruerades en webb-enkät som bestod av tre beprövande test som mätte personlighet (Big-Six), emotionell intelligens (TEIQue-SF) och inställning till intuition vid rekryteringsbeslut. Stickprovet bestod av 100 yrkesutövare inom Human Resource med erfarenhet av rekrytering. Studiens resultat tyder på att personer som är positivt inställda till användning av intuition inom rekryteringsbeslut är mer extroverta. Resultatet tyder också på att personer som är negativt inställda till användning av intuition vid rekryteringsbeslut är mer emotionellt stabila samt ärliga-ödmjuka.

Abstract [en]

In a recruitment process, recruiters make daily decision on which candidates are best suited for specific position. Research shows that standardized recruitment methods have a high predictive value that can explain individuals' future performance. Nevertheless, many professionals prefer intuition-based working methods. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the connection between personality, emotional intelligence and the attitude of using intuition in recruitment decisions. When collecting empirical data, a web-survey was constructed consisting of three tests that measured personality (Big-Six), Emotional Intelligence (TEIque-SF) and intuition methods when hiring. The sample consisted of 100 recruitment professionals within Human Resource. The results of the study indicate that people who are positively committed to the use of intuition in recruitment decisions are more extroverted. The result also indicates that people who are negative to the use of intuition in recruitment decisions are more emotional stable and honest-humility.
