Introduction to Psychometric Assessments

The word ‘psychometric’ is formed from the Greek words for ‘mental’ and ‘measurement’. Psychometric tests attempt to objectively measure aspects of your mental ability or your personality. A psychometric test at its basic level measures your ability to perform tasks, personality, behavior, how people differ in their style or manner of doing things, and in the way they interact with their environment and other people.

Psychometric tests are now extensively used in the corporate world; for recruitment, promotion; for training and even in coaching. It is generally assumed to be used by over 80% of the Fortune 500 companies in the USA and by over 75% of the Times Top 100 companies in the UK. Tests are used by many employers across most sectors, including IT, engineering, energy, banking, consultancy, accountancy, the civil service and other public sector, fast moving consumer goods and retail.
