Abstract: The focus of this study is on the use of both explicit and implicit personality tools to predict job performance. Prior research has shown that conscientiousness can predict job performance. However, explicit tools have the disadvantage that people can present themselves in a socially desirable way. This is especially true for personality questionnaires. Whereas strategies like warning people not to fake on an explicit tool or using a forced choice method could help to reduce faking on explicit tools, implicit tools could also be a valuable alternative. Implicit tools do not suffer from faking problems, as people give information about themselves unconsciously. The goal of this study is to increase the knowledge regarding the use of implicit personality tools. More specifically, this study tries to answer the question whether implicit conscientiousness can predict job performance.
