What would you do really or ideally? : Constructs underlying the behavior description interview and the situational interview in predicting typical versus maximum performance
A predictive validation study was conducted to determine the extent to which the behavior description (BDI) and situational (SI) interviews predict typical versus maximum performance. Incoming MBA-students (n = 79) were interviewed regarding teamplaying behavior. Four months later, peers within study groups anonymously evaluated each person´s ... typical teamplaying behavior, whereas other peers within project groups anonymously evaluated each person´s maximum teamplaying behavior. Both the BDI and the SI predicted typical performance. The SI also predicted maximum performance. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.
