Psychometric test examples and test advice
It has become increasingly popular for companies to use psychometric tests to access their candidates. These tests are commonly used by larger corporations who have many candidates for many roles.
The purpose of the tests is to assess your motivation, interests and values, as well as your behavior and attitudes. These questions don't generally have a right or wrong answer.
The test often comes in the form of a personality questionnaire, with multiple choice questions. Once the test is done you are often placed in a category which summarises what sort of person you are and how you react in different situations.
It is important to practice these tests before you take them so you get used to them. There are many of these tests available on the internet.
These personality questionnaires can also be used as
self-assessment tools to help you understand what you like, what you
strengths are, where you need to develop and how your personality will
fit in different working environments.
