In all, that survey suggested many reasons for caution in the use of such tests in any occupational group; even where average validities seemed substantial, numerous cases of low and even negative validities were uncovered. There was, of course, the distinct possibility that the wide variation in validities could be attributed to differences in the tests used; that is, some tests might be quite valid within an occupational group, and other tests decidedly invalid. An average could hardly be expected to be impressive. With such an argument, it was quite simple to ignore many of the implications of the Ghiselli and Barthol survey while looking for the âideal test.â The past decade or two has seen such a bewildering proliferation of new personality meaaures that Dunnette (1962) was moved to urge a moratorium on construction of new tests until those already available are better utilieed.
