Rorschach, Horshack and Abednego
The phrase above tumbled out of my head as I read this blog post from our partners at Troutman Sanders. Kind of went like this:
Personality testing –> Rorschach –> Somebody, Meshach and Abenego –> somebody in the Sweathogs.
I am sure it says something about me that a Meyers-Briggs test begat inkblots begat catechism with Reverend Tozer begat a late 70’s sitcom, but I don’t know what it is. However, I now crave a long narrow loaf of French bread.
Although personality is not a protected class and is a legitimate reason not to hire an applicant and/or discipline an employee, you know adding "testing" to anything almost always raises red flags, so check out the blog.
