We use this (and pardon me if you've heard this before, because I think
I've mentioned it here). Our method is called Targeted Selection, and
it's based on the theory that future performance can best be determined
by reviewing past performance, not by believing what the interviewee
thinks they "would do" in a certain circumstance. The interview is
extremely structured -- tell me about a time when you did X, and what
was the result. We don't rely on this interview alone, and we don't
watch eye movements to try and catch them in a lie. But I might try
Barry's experiment... it sounds interesting. :-)
