Judging others and perception

We use number of short cuts when we judging others. However, they are not foolproof. They can and do get us into trouble. An understanding of these shortcuts can be helpful toward recognizing when they can result in significant distortions. So we should understand the outcomes of these perceptual errors to minimize the errors in decision-making. Because these judgments have important consequences for the organization. If the employment interview is an important input into the hiring decision –and it usually is-you should recognize that perceptual factors influence who is hired and eventually the quality of an organization’s labor force.
