One psychology professor claims interviews are biased against modest people and those from self-effacing cultural backgrounds.

    I completely agree. Thoughtful, respectful and competent candidates from all cultures tend to be at a disadvantage in our current interview system. I make a point of asking substantive questions at an interview, such as "how would you solve xxx problem?" or "how have you dealt with xxx situation in the past?" Some of my best hires have been quiet thoughtful candidates who excelled at providing substantive responses, but appeared less attractive on a superficial level.
