Thesis title and abstract:
Impression Management by High and Low Self-Monitoring Job Applicants on Computer versus Paper-and-Pencil Questionnaires
     This study investigated whether the method of administering questionnaires to job applicants impacts their performance. Because past research has shown that subjects high in self-monitoring are more sensitive to situational characteristics, it was hypothesized that high self-monitors would be more impacted by the method of administration than would low self-monitors.
      One hundred nine undergraduate students played the role of job applicant, with a prize offered as a motivator. Subjects completed the HPI Reliability Scale and the BIDR Impression Management Scale, either by computer or by paper and pencil. All completed Snyder’s Self-Monitoring Scale.
      Subjects were classified as high or low self-monitors and two-way analyses of variance were performed on HPI and BIDR scores. No main effect or interaction was found on questionnaire responses due to self-monitoring ability or mode of administration. Additional analyses with Snyder’s Self-Monitoring Scale’s factor subscales suggested that Extraversion may be more useful than the full scale.
