Personality and Psychometric Tests

"- the science of measuring mental capacities and processes." - Oxford English Dictionary

The dictionary definition may be a simple one, but it belies the complexity of a subject that has become increasingly important to businesses in recent years.

The use of personality type testing in particular, has a vital role to play in recruitment processes if companies and organisations are to find the most suitable candidates.

In fact, psychometric testing is now widely accepted as one of the most effective benchmarking tools to judge the suitability for a role and explores aspects of their character that can be judged from an interview alone.

Traditionally, employers have tended to hire people on the grounds that they have suitable qualifications and/or are good at interviews - not because they have what it takes to be successful at doing the job in question.

Tests also offer distinct benefits for candidates too. Whilst it is possible to fool a test and manipulate results, who really wants a job that doesn't suit them and is sure to cause problems in the future.

In recent years a broad range of businesses and organisations operating in all walks of life have adopted such tests and it is wide practices in a number of professions, including:

  • Teaching
  • Nursing
  • Professional football
  • The armed forces
  • Police
  • Finance

Of course, there are some instances where psychometric tests being used inappropriately, but, when used properly, it is good for employers and candidates. The tests aren't a tool used by employers to trick candidates out of a job, but are best used as one of several methods available to ensure the right person gets the right job.

When coupled with intelligent interpretation of the results, psychometric test, intelligence tests and personality tests can help produce a perfect employee/job match, which ultimately is in everyone's interest.
