The ability to identify criteria (ATIC), which is an individual’s aptitude to correctly gauge performance criteria in a selection context, is an emerging topic of interest in the field of personnel selection. While research has shown that ATIC scores may predict test performance as well as job performance, little research has been done regarding how individual differences can affect the relationship between one’s ATIC and their performance on selection procedures; specifically, the structured interview. I propose two mediated moderation models. The first model examines the moderating effect of anxious attachment on the ATIC-interview performance relationship that is mediated by interview specific rumination. The second model examines the moderating effect of avoidant attachment on the ATIC-interview performance relationship that is mediated by the difference between interview specific self-monitoring and general self-monitoring.
