Title:Nonverbal and Verbal Content Behaviors in the Prediction of Interviewer Effectiveness
Author(s):Nagata, Donna Kiyo

Subject(s):Psychology, Clinical
Abstract:The present study assesses the ecological validity of previous research results which have suggested that an interviewer's nonverbal behaviors predominate over verbal content behaviors in the prediction of interviewer effectiveness ratings. In contrast to earlier investigations, the current study assesses naturally occurring interviewer behaviors and uses client rather than observer ratings of effectiveness gathered from analogue interviews. Results suggest that nonverbal interviewer behaviors do not clearly predominate over verbal content behaviors in the prediction of effectiveness ratings and that findings of nonverbal superiority are not generalizable to more ecologically valid interview settings.
