What is Psychometric Testing?

The term Psychometric assessment simply means the measurement of a person’s talents: this includes personality, but crucially also covers motivation and aptitudes as well as how these talents best match a role in an organisation / business or to get to know oneself better. These are highly confidential tests conducted under a controlled environment.

TAT: The Thematic Apperception Test is a projective psychological test that helps reveal the test taker’s underlying motives, concerns, and the way they see the world. Special value resides in its power to expose the underlying inhibited tendencies which the subjects or patient, is not willing to admit, or cannot admit because he is unconscious to them.

PSI Test: The full form of this is Psychological Screening Inventory. Most employers recognise that personality is of great importance in success at work and they use PSI to quickly focus on those candidates who have the most potential. Based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality types, 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.

RSI Test: The full form of this is Richmond Survey Instrument. Edgar Schein developed the idea of career anchors – these are the things that people most want out of a career and what ultimately drives them to take final decision. The modified career drivers instrument is based on nine major heads: Money, Power, Meaning, Expertise, Innovation, Social Affiliation, Autonomy, Security and Status.
