Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals’ mental capabilities and behavioural style.Psychometric tests are designed to measure candidates’ suitability for a role based on the required personality characteristics and aptitude (or cognitive abilities).
We have four different kind of Psychometric test for Individuals-
1.Psychometric Multiple Intelligence Test:Eugene Burke, an occupational psychologist at SHL, the world leader in psychometric assessment said: “The term ‘psychometric assessment’ simply means the measurement of a person’s talents and covers motivation and aptitudes as well and how these talents best match a role in an organization.This model is based on MI model of Howard Gardner and talks about 9 (nine different multiple Intelligences) and 5 different Brain Quiotents.It also gives a deep insight on 300 different carriers of an Individual.
2.Psychological Screening Inventory (PSI): The PSI is based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality types. Jung found recognizable and repeated patterns in behaviors linked to our conscious perceiving of the world, our decision making about the world, our attitudes toward life, and our relationship to the expectations of the world. The pattern it evolves is very similar to the more famous Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test; it is sometimes also called the mini MBTI. The MBTI attempts to measure how people usually behave. The PSI measures how people would prefer to behave. We believe this unveils a style closer to the true nature of the individual’s personality style
3.Thematic Apperception Test (TAT): TAT is a method of revealing to the trained interpreter some of the dominant drives, emotions, sentiments, complexes and conflicts of a personality. Special value resides in its power to expose the underlying inhibited tendencies which the subjects, or patients, is not willing to admit, or can not admit because he is unconscious of them.
4.Richmond Survey Instrument (RSI): Edgar Schein developed the idea of career anchors. Career anchors are what people most want out of a career and what ultimately drives to take final decision. The modified career driver’s instrument is based on 9 major heads: Money, Power, Meaning, Expertise, Innovation, Social Affiliation, Autonomy, Security and Status
