First of all, Personality Tests are to be used as "Appropriate Selection Tool" and not as a rejection tool.

Secondly, all such tests should be administered only by a certified / trained and experienced professional. As we all are professionals and we are sensitive that "one simple error" may cost another colleague an opportunity of a good career OR even a set back.

I am positive you will agree.

Cheers

AK

Hi Sudhan,
personality test definately helps to determine an individual capabilities but this cannot be considered as a full proof method because people can manipulate answers. I don't say all are manipulative, but most of them are.

The test has to be practical & conducted in such a manner where he /she isn't aware whether they are being been checked or analysed on parameters pertaining to personality. Example : A candidate can be engaged in a brainstroming session & there he can be checked for his EQ & IQ.

Thanks
Kumud

Hi,
I believe that these tests do tell u a lot. Since what u fill in is based on your own thinking styles... so obviously u r speaking about yourself and will get appropriate results. I have developed a battery of such tests and the results are uncanny...
