Experiments have shown that in selecting personnel for a job, interviewing is at best a hindrance, and may even cause harm. These studies have disclosed that the judgments of interviewers differ markedly and bear little or no relationship to the adequacy of the job applicants. Of the many reasons why this should be the case, three in particular stand out.
The first reason is related to an error of judgment known as the halo effect. If a person has one noticeable good trait, their other characteristics will be judged as better than they really are. Thus, an individual who dresses smartly and shows self-confidence is likely to be judged capable of doing a job well regardless of his or her real ability.
Interviewers are also prejudiced by an effect called the primacy effect. This error occurs when interpretation of later information is distorted by earlier connected information. Hence, in an interview situation, the interviewer spends most of the interview trying to confirm the first impression given by the candidate in the first few moments. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that such an impression is unrelated to the aptitude of the applicant.
The phenomenon known as the contrast effect also skews the judgment of interviewers. A suitable candidate may be underestimated because he or she contrasts with a previous one who appears exceptionally intelligent. Likewise, an average candidate who is preceded by one who gives a weak showing may be judged as more suitable than he or she really is.
Since interviews as a form of personnel selection have been shown to be inadequate, other selection procedures have been devised which more accurately predict candidate suitability. Of the accurate tests devised, the predictor which appears to do this most successfully is cognitive ability as measured by a variety of verbal and spatial tests.
Question 36: The word “they” in line 6 refers to _______.
A. applicants B.judgments C. interviewers D. characteristics
Question 37: The word “this” in line 20 refers to _______.
A. measure cognitive ability B. devise personnel selection

Question 38: This passage mainly discusses the _______.
A. Judgments of interviewers concerning job applicants.
B. Inadequacy of interviewing job applicants.
C. Effects of interviewing on job applicants.
D. Techniques that interviewers use for judging job applicants.
Question 39: According to the passage, the halo effect _______.
A. leads an error of judgment between good trait and real ability
B. takes effect only when a candidate is well -dressed
C. stands out as the worst judgmental error
D. helps the interviewer’s capability to judge real ability

A. can easily be altered B. is unrelated to the interviewer’s prejudices

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 43 to 50.
Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as more real than speech. A little thought , however will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have been writing (as far as we can tell from surviving evidence) for at least 5000 years; but they have been talking for much longer , doubless ever since there have been human beings.
When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly. Even today there are spoken language that have no wrtiten form . Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write ; any human child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally will learn to talk ; a normal human being cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write . In the past many intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill , and even today many who speak languages with writing systems never learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so only imperfectly
To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage the latter. One advantage writing has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records that any civilization must have.Thus , if speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized.
