As an employer who interviews engineering candidates, I'm interested in using the state of the art findings in psychometrics/psychology to predict which candidates are the most likely to be successful.

What I'm aware of is IQ and conscientiousness/industriousness are both very important and well evidenced.

Are there any other strong indicators that I can use in a practical way to filter candidates?
