Senior Thesis Spotlight:

"The Use of Personality Testing in Personnel Selection"
by Riya Kumar '19

โ€œI was once rejected from a job based off a personality test I was required to take during the hiring process. This elicited my interest in determining how companies use these tests in recruitment, and whether they are actually measuring what they intend to measure. It is important to consider that many personality tests suffer from reliability and validity issues. One major lesson I learned from writing my thesis was to never take things at face value. It is important to look at the underlying methodology of personality tests and determine which situations or job roles they should be used in.โ€

The Best Exercise for Every Mood 09/19/2018

Who knew that psychology plays a role in determining what type of workout you should do on any given day?

According to Anna Medaris Miller, Senior Health Editor at U.S. News, doing a workout that "feels good" enhances the workout and increases the chances you will continue with your exercise routine. Doing what "feel good" depends on your current mood, so before you hit the gym, be sure to gauge your mood. If you are excited or anxious, do a super challenging workout that requires you to focus your energy on the exercises. If you are feeling sad, go for a walk or jog outside. If you are feeling lazy or tired, it's okay to take a rest day.
