The authors concluded that it is counterproductive to write off all the areas of expertise of individual differences as it relates to personality with reference to staff selection and organizational decision making for the science and practice of I-O psychology.

The authors of this scholarly article discuss the techniques used for measuring performance in organizations. Their selected choice is the behavioral rating scale, and the commonly used one is the frequency type of response scale. This format requires that raters demonstrate how frequent a manager or leader exhibits specific type of behavior. Another type of response scale that is used is the evaluation type, wherein the rater is asked to determine the effectiveness of the manager’s performance including his or her behavior, role, or function as described in the survey item. The authors concluded that the major difference between frequency and evaluation response scales is that frequency engages raters to describe performance while evaluation response requires that raters determine the quality of performance.
