What are Psychometric Tests?

Find a Job - What are Psychometric Tests?

Psychometric tests are being used more and more by employers in the job application process. The aim of psychometric testing is to test your ability or your personality and your behavior to discover what motivates you and therefore whether you are suitable for the employer in question.

As employers normally have a lot of applications for any given position, psychometric tests are used to eliminate candidates quickly, without wasting too much time for the employer.

There are 3 main areas that are tested : ability, personality and interest.
