To Include, or Not to Include? Accuracy of Personality Judgments from Resumes with and Without Photographs
Swiss Journal of Psychology
We investigate whether adding the applicant's photograph on his/her resume boosts or hampers the accurate assessment of the applicant's personality (Big 5 and intelligence). One hundred and fourteen participants rated 8 applicants (4 men and 4 women) in terms of their personality (Big 5 and intelligence). The design was a 3 (condition: resume with photograph, resume only, and photograph only) x 2 (participant gender) between-subjects design. Results show that in all conditions, personality (with the exception of agreeableness) were assessed at better than guessing level. Adding a photograph to the resume did not change the accuracy of the personality assessment significantly.
