A contextual model for analyzing anxiety in selection interviews
MetadataShow full item record
A contextual model is used to explain what distal and proximal variables explain individual’s reported MASI. Research questions sought to determine whether distal and proximal variables were related to and/or predicted individual’s reports of MASI. The PRCA and the MASI are related constructs 30% of the time. Other major correlations include: CSC (communicator image, relaxed, attentive, open, and dominant), and interview salience were all inversely related to the MASI. Males reported PRCA and an attentive CSC accounted for the majority of variance of the MASI. Females reported PRCA, relaxed CSC, interview salience, and dominant CSC accounted for majority of the variance in relation to the MASI. Research question three sought to determine whether males and females reports of MASI significantly differ. Findings suggest specialized training modules should be created to effectively reduce males and females reported MASI.
