Description The conference paper deals with a research project focused on the influence of social effec- tiveness on performance during selection. The aim of the research is to verify an assumption that assessment of applicants’ performance is influenced not only by their personal qualities but also by applicants’ ability to discern requirements of the situation and ability to adjust self-presentation according to them (social effectiveness). It is of interest for us under which circumstances social effectiveness influences the performance. Therefore, we focus on the relationship of self-monitoring (SM) and ability to identify criteria (ATIC) to the selection performance and to variables which moderate these relationships (e. g. self-efficacy, GMA). The research of the influence of social effectiveness on performance may reinforce construct validity of some selection methods. We further assume that social effectiveness influences whether and how applicants display their qualities during selection. We anticipate that rela- tionship between personality traits of applicants and their performance during selection will be moderated by SM and SIPS. More knowledge about moderating effect of social effective- ness can contribute to understanding the relationship between personality (predictor) and behaviour (selection performance). Our assumptions will be verified in the sample of at least 250 applicants in real assessment centres.
