Psychometric testing geared to candidate selection, development centers and talent management falls into three general categories: Occupational interests – explore what you values, motivations, and opinions on a range of subjects. The results are used to suggest what particular occupations are best suited for the candidate. Personality – examine personal traits and behavioral styles, predominantly how one interacts with the environment and other people in it. These tests assess the major aspects of the participant’s personality, such as whether they’re more extraverted or introverted, how openly they communicate, their level of agreeableness, how conscientiously they behave, and any neurotic tendencies. Abilities – Personal strengths and weaknesses with respect to certain tasks are the focus of aptitude tests. Typically, these use a number of measures to assess various abilities as well as reasoning skills that are necessary for problem solving. The results may demonstrate that the test taker has highly developed verbal reasoning skills, excels at technical tasks or is very artistic, for example. Drive your teams & organizations to their limitless potential!
