In contrast, general cognitive ability is only weakly related to organizational commitment. 10.6 Many organizations use cognitive ability tests to hire applicants with high levels of general cognitive ability. One of the most commonly used tests is the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test. ¥ Ability p. 304 ¥ Cognitive ability p. 307 ¥ Verbal ability p. 308 ¥ Quantitative ability p. 308 ¥ Reasoning ability p. 308 ¥ Spatial ability p. 309 ¥ Perceptual ability p. 309 ¥ General cognitive ability p. 310 ¥ Emotional intelligence p. 311 ¥ Self-awareness p. 311 ¥ Other awareness p. 311 ¥ Emotion regulation p. 312 ¥ Use of emotions p. 312 ¥ Strength p. 315 ¥ Stamina p. 315 ¥ Flexibility p. 315 ¥ Coordination p. 318 ¥ Psychomotor ability p. 318 ¥ Sensory abilities p. 318 ¥ Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test p. 322Key TermsDiscussion Questions 10.1 What roles do learning, education, and other experiences play in determining a personÕs abilities? For which type of abilityÑcognitive, emotional, or physicalÑdo these factors play the largest role? 10.2 Think of a job that requires very high levels of certain cognitive abilities. Can you think of a way to redesign that job so that people who lack those abilities could still perform the job effectively? Now respond to the same question with regard to emotional and physical abilities. 10.3 Consider your responses to the previous questions. Are cognitive, emotional, and physical abilities different in the degree to which jobs can be redesigned to accommodate people who lack relevant abilities? What are the implications of this difference, if there is one? 10.4 Think of experiences youÕve had with people who demonstrated unusually high or low levels of emotional intelligence. Then consider how you would rate them in terms of their cognitive abilities. Do you think that emotional intelligence Òbleeds overÓ to affect peopleÕs perceptions of cognitive ability? 10.5 What combination of abilities is appropriate for the job of your dreams? Do you possess those abilities? If you fall short on any of these abilities, what could you do to improve?Case: U.S. Marine CorpsThe U.S. Marine Corps is a large organization with a highly recognizable culture that values mental and physical toughness, pride, and character. However, with emerging technologies and other geopolitical trends, the battlefield is changing in ways that have a number of important implications for the type of individual who is recruited and trained to become a Marine. The challenge confronting U.S. military leadership is how to cope with these changes in a way that Final PDF to printer
coL61557_ch10_302-332.indd 326 12/10/19 03:47 PM326CHAPTER 10 Abilityfacilitates accomplishment of an evolving Marine Corps mission and, at the same time, preserves the Marine CorpsÕ rich tradition.There are new technologies and tasks needing to be accomplished for which there is little expertise in the Marine Corps, so creating new positions to deal with these tasksÑand filling these positions with the appropriate personnelÑis a top priority. Perhaps the best example is the growing need for cyber-security personnel who have knowledge of computers and electronics, network monitoring software, development environment software, transaction security and anti-virus software, operating systems, and web platforms. Cyber-security personnel are needed not only to work in offices and computer laboratories for support and administrative purposes, but also for forward deployment in the field to ensure computer information can be used for opera-tional purposes. Regardless of the context in which they work, cyber-security personnel need to have a keen sense of when things are going wrong, or when thereÕs likely to be a problem. They also need to be able to apply general rules to solve problems, and to combine various pieces of seemingly unrelated information to form conclusions.The need for cyber-security personnel is so immediate that there has been talk of allowing for lateral entry into the Marine Corps. This means that those with the requisite cyber-security skills and abilities may be allowed to join the Marine Corps, at an advanced rank, without having to go through boot camp. One concern with this idea is that boot camp weeds out recruits who do not have the mental and physical abilities necessary to be a ÒtrueÓ Marine. The obvious alternative is to recruit and train individuals who have the complete mix of abilities needed to excel as both a Marine warrior and as a cyber-security specialist. However, it may be difficult to find the right individuals, and the process of training them may take too long. By the time new recruits make their way through boot camp and cyber training, altogether new cyber threats may emerge. 10.1 Identify and describe the types of abilities that historically have been most relevant to Marine effectiveness. Which additional abilities appear to be important for Marines involved in cyber-security? 10.2 Why might it be difficult to find new recruits that possess the appropriate mix of abilities? What could the Marine Corps do to increase the size of the pool of applicants with these abilities? 10.3 How might the Marine Corps be able to use their existing workforce to deal with their need for cyber-personnel?
