The purpose of this research was to examine the relationship between extraversion, self-monitoring, and interview performance using unstructured and structured interivew items. Specifically, it was proposed that the variables extraversion and self-monitoring would be more strongly correlated with interview performance for unstructured items than structured items. It was also hypothesized that self-monitoring would moderate the effect of extraversion on interview performance. Participants were administered a brief mock interview composed of two structured and two unstructured interview items. Interviews were later scored using behaviorally anchored rating scales. Results indicated that although extraversion was significantly positively related to interview performance, the relationship between extraversion and unstructured interview items was not significantly greater than the relationship between extraversion and unstructured items. The expected interaction between self-monitoring, item structure, and interview performance was not found. An interaction effect between self-monitoring, extraversion, and item type was not found to impact performance. Implications are discussed.
