Huang Hong, who ranked at the top on the Qinghai bureau of China Insurance Regulatory Commission's civil service test, was eliminated because of her introverted personality, China Youth Daily reported Thursday.

Huang, 27, had passed the national civil servant examination, the professional examination, job interview and physical examination, and ranked at the top for the professional supervision position.

Huang never expected that she would receive a call informing her that she was not qualified for the job because of her introverted character.

She asked for a written document citing the reason, but the Qinghai bureau of CIRC refused.

"We cannot reveal the details of the investigation, and it's the rule of the State Administration of Civil Service," said Wang Qiang, director of the Personnel Department under the Qinghai bureau of CIRC.

Huang, who majored in insurance at Renmin University of China, is now working in finance in Beijing.
