哈利波特与背景调查

如果魔法霍格沃茨学院的校长阿不思·邓布利多意识到对他聘请的教授进行彻底背景调查的价值,他就不会在整个系列中遇到这么多困难的情况。

如果由于某种原因,您在过去的十年里睡了一觉,错过了近代史上最受欢迎的文学和电影系列之一,那么您可能没有意识到霍格沃茨是魔法世界最负盛名的学院之一。而且,作为学校的校长,和蔼可亲的老邓布利多负责这所传奇学校的所有事务,包括挑选顶尖教授来教导年轻的女巫和巫师。

邓布利多对教授的有趣选择当然表明他一定没有意识到进行全面背景调查的价值。

以 Quirinus Quirrell 教授为例。

这是一个被聘为高级职员的人,结果证明他很容易腐败。这就是他与伏地魔联合并服从他的命令的原因。

此外,在遇到伏地魔之后,奇洛让黑魔王的脸贴在他的后脑勺上,把他带回了霍格沃茨。奇洛戴着一整年都没有摘过的头巾来掩盖这一点。如果邓布利多对奇洛的推荐人和以前的雇主进行了适当的检查,他本可以发现这位戴头巾的导师与黑暗面结盟的证据。

哎呀,即使对他的员工执行适当的着装要求——例如,课堂上没有头巾——也很容易暴露出两面奇洛的险恶意图!相反,伏地魔几乎控制了奇洛整整一年,并试图偷走魔法石。更糟糕的是,他还试图亲手杀死年轻的哈利!

同样,如果邓布利多对吉德罗·洛哈特进行了全面的背景调查,他会被聘为黑魔法防御术教授吗?

洛克哈特以作家的身份出名。他写了几本畅销书,这可能使他的简历闪闪发光,但对他的教育进行彻底检查会发现,他在霍格沃茨上学时曾多次被拘留。洛哈特痴迷于吸引其他学生的注意力,这迫使他故意制造麻烦,以便获得名声。因此,他因轻罪而受到的拘留将被列入他的永久学校记录。

此外,洛克哈特本应被迫提供的参考资料表明他是一个自私、善于操纵和自恋的骗子。他以使用记忆咒语改变人们的记忆以使其受益而闻名;虽然他声称用它们来完成了几项英勇的行为,但实际上,他强迫人们忘记他们所做的工作,以便他能够获得功劳。

洛哈特缺乏正直、自私和淘气的方式只是一些负面特征,如果他进行了适当的背景调查,这些特征可能会凭空出现。

多洛雷斯·乌姆里奇(Dolores Umbridge)是另一位霍格沃茨教授,如果邓布利多进行了良好的背景调查,他的工作可能会被拒绝。

她的简历可能相当令人印象深刻。她在 17 岁时作为魔法部的实习生开始了她的政治生涯,并通过自己的方式晋升到更高的职位。然而,彻底检查她在魔法部的工作会发现一些关于她的令人不快的事实,例如她对其他同事的偏见和虐待。

那些熟人会报告说,乌姆里奇凭借专横的领导和无情的策略成为了办公室主任。

她的简历显示她有不当的歧视;她率先制定了反狼人立法,该立法阻止了狼人(一种导致人变成野兽的异常传染性疾病)获得全职工作。这使得狼人几乎不可能找到工作。谁需要高失业率,尤其是在神秘的幻想世界中?

凭借其强大的嗅觉,狼人将成为调查的宝贵资源。他们本可以帮助追查逃犯和失踪人员。狼人凭借其强大的实力和威慑的外表,也可以担任守卫,是守卫禁林的绝佳人选——哪个心智健全的学生进入危险的森林后会想面对他们?

不幸的是,由于乌姆里奇女士和她的短视偏见,狼人没有获得这样的就业机会。

如果背景调查是强制性的,乌姆里奇就不太可能被授予黑魔法防御术的教学职位,如果是这样,那么霍格沃茨就会免于乌姆里奇最终造成的这么多麻烦.

总的来说,如果邓布利多多注意进行彻底的背景调查而不是仅仅查看他或她的简历,那么各种超自然灾害和邪恶行为是可以避免的。对一个人的犯罪记录、教育和以前的雇主进行背景调查可以揭示候选人的真实本性。即使是挥舞魔杖的巫师!

唉,我担心我的启示可能会让上述霍格沃茨的一两个工作人员感到不安,因为我相信我正在变成一条蝾螈。

If for some reason you have slept through the past decade and missed one of the most popular literary and movie franchises in recent history, you may not be aware that Hogwarts was renowned as one of the most prestigious academies in the wizarding world. And, as the school’s head, kindly old Dumbledore was responsible for all business regarding the legendary school including selecting the top professors to teach the young witches and wizards.

Dumbledore’s interesting selection of professors certainly indicates that he must not have been aware of the value of conducting comprehensive background checks.

Take for example Professor Quirinus Quirrell.

Here’s a guy hired as a senior staff member who, as it turned out, was easily corruptible. This is the reason why he united with Lord Voldemort and obeyed his orders.

Moreover, after meeting Lord Voldemort, Quirrell allowed The Dark Lord’s face to stick to the back of his head and brought him back to Hogwarts. Quirrell covered this up by wearing a turban that he never took off throughout the year. If Dumbledore had conducted a proper check of Quirrell’s references and previous employers, he could have uncovered evidence of the turban-wearing tutor’s alliance with the dark side.

Heck, even enforcing a proper dress code for his staff – no turbans in class, for example – would have easily revealed the two-faced Quirrell’s sinister intent! Instead, Voldemort was able to control Quirrell for almost an entire year and, attempted to steal the Philosopher’s stone. Worse, he also attempted to kill young Harry himself!

Similarly, had Dumbledore administered a comprehensive background check of Gilderoy Lockhart, would he have been hired as the Professor of Defense against the Dark Arts?

Lockhart acquired fame as an author. He wrote several bestselling books which may have made his resume sparkle, but a thorough check of his education would reveal that he received several detentions when he was a student at Hogwarts. Lockhart’s obsession with gaining attention from the other students compelled him to purposefully cause trouble so he could gain notoriety. Consequently, the detentions he received for his misdemeanors would have been listed in his permanent school records.

Additionally, references Lockhart should have been compelled to furnish would have revealed that he was a selfish, manipulative, and narcissistic liar. He is known for using memory charms to modify people’s memories to his benefit; while he claimed to have used them to perform several heroic acts, in reality, he forced people to forget about work they did so he could take the credit.

Lockhart’s lack of integrity, selfishness, and mischievous ways are but a few negative characteristics that may have appeared as if out of thin air if he’d had a proper background check.

Dolores Umbridge is yet another Hogwarts professor whose employment could have been denied if Dumbledore had conducted a good background check.

Her resume may have been quite impressive; she started her political career at the age of 17 as an intern for the Ministry of Magic, and worked her way up to higher positions. However a thorough check on her work for the Ministry would have revealed several unpleasant facts about her, such as her prejudice and maltreatment of other co-workers.

Those acquaintances would have reported that Umbridge became Head of the Office thanks to tyrannical leadership and ruthless tactics.

Her resume showed that she was inappropriately discriminatory; she spearheaded the Anti-Werewolf Legislation which prevented people with lycanthropy (the unusually contagious disease that causes a person to transform into a beast), to get a full-time job. This made it almost impossible for werewolves to find work. And who needs high unemployment rates, especially in a mystical fantasy world?

With their strong sense of smell, werewolves would have been invaluable resources for investigations. They could have helped track down escaped criminals and missing people. Werewolves could have also served as guards due to their strength and intimidating appearance, making them great candidates for guarding the Forbidden Forest – what student in their right mind would want to face them upon entering the dangerous forest?

Unfortunately, werewolves were not granted such employment opportunities thanks to Ms. Umbridge and her short-sighted prejudices.

If a background check was mandatory, it is highly unlikely that Umbridge would have been granted the teaching position for the Defense against the Dark Arts, and if that were the case, then Hogwarts would have been spared from so much trouble that Umbridge would eventually cause.

Overall, had Dumbledore paid a bit more attention to conducting thorough background checks rather than just viewing his or her resume, all sorts of supernatural calamities and nefarious deeds could have been avoided. Administering background checks on a person’s criminal records, education, and previous employers can reveal a candidate’s true nature. Even for magic wand-wielding wizards!

Alas, I fear my revelations may have upset one or two of the aforementioned Hogwarts staff as I believe I’m being turned into a newt.
