Psychometric Tests

Psychometric tests are used to identify a candidate’s skills, knowledge and personality. These tests are increasingly popular in recruitment and are now used across many industries. They typically consist of numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, diagrammatic reasoning and situational judgement tests, although new tests are always being developed.

What are
psychometric tests?

Psychometric tests are designed to help employers objectively measure candidates cognitive abilities, attitudes, personality and knowledge. In the majority of cases, these tests involve multiple-choice questions to be completed in a tight time frame.

Psychometric tests are believed to be a reliable method of assessing employability skills in a sense that they provide a source of meaningful and consistent insights over time, regardless the specificity of a discipline to which they are being applied. It’s hardly impossible to avoid taking psychometrics tests if you think of joining any of the big players on the market.

Types of Psychometric testing

Numerical Reasoning

Numerical Reasoning

Numerical reasoning tests assess your knowledge of Ratios, Percentage Increase/Decrease, Cost and Sales Analysis, Rates and Trends, and Currency Conversions. To solve the problems you are usually allowed to use a calculator, but all other knowledge must come from your head!

Introducing psychometric tests

There are quite a few of psychometric tests out there, mainly because humans tend to have quite a lot of cognitive capabilities! In general, we can differentiate between aptitude tests and personality tests.

Such a broad overview of the skills psychometric tests probably has already given you clue how employers might want to you use them. Technically speaking, it’s all about assessing your cognitive and social powers which allow companies and organisations to streamline the process by finding the right candidates sooner.

Based on the answers to these tests employers can effectively build a personal profile and see if it matches with the company’s culture and the role in particular. The profiles are further used in providing an overview of how the person might perform and behave in the workplace.

One of the most common bits of advice you have probably heard is to practice these tests beforehand. Unfortunately, we can’t provide you with anything more revealing. We were founded on that belief that practice really does improve performance as candidates familiarise themselves with the types of tests they’ll face and hone the types of skills they’ll need.

If you’re unsure of certain questions or feel you have consistent weaknesses, look at the explanations and see how the professionals work out the answer. Often breaking down complicated questions into little steps can make it seem so much easier.
