In response to my previous posts, people have asked what I see as the issues that are currently being faced by the I/O psychology discipline. I would say there are three interconnected issues that affect our discipline.
The failure of I/O psychologists to recognise that its basis is a quantifiable science has resulted in the blind acceptance that psychometric assessments can ultimately lead to predictions that can be quantified to a large extent.
I have often discussed the role of science in our discipline and have argued that it has consistently played a back role to commercialisation and marketing. This is perhaps the greatest divide in the discipline.
