Psychometric & personality test advice

Psychometric tests, sometimes also referred to as personality tests, are designed to assess your fit for the role and company on a deeper level. Many employers like these tests as the results give them an insight into your way of thinking and working. It can be difficult for them to gain this information from reading your CV or interviewing you in a structured environment.

Psychometric tests offer a potential employer an insight into several areas, such as how you interact with others in a work environment, how you cope with stressful or volatile situations and whether your personality and working style fits with the company’s culture.

These tests consist of a number of statements which you are asked to agree/disagree with. Answers are usually multiple choice and are on a spectrum e.g. ‘Strongly Agree’ down to ‘Strongly Disagree’. When reading the questions, keep in mind that your answers should be based on that situation in a work environment rather than a social or personal setting. Bear in mind that there’s no such thing as a right or wrong answer to these questions. You should try to answer honestly as it will be obvious to the assessor if you have tried to ‘cheat the system’!
