What is a Psychometric Test or Assessment?
Psychometric profiling tests or assessments are objective and scientific tools that measure a person’s suitability for a job role based on their personality styles or cognitive abilities.
Cognitive and Aptitude tests: Measure logical and verbal reasoning, problem solving, skills and aptitudes.
Personality tests: Measure workplace preferences, behaviour, values, attitudes, communication styles, motivators, personality strengths and limitations.
Psychometric testing reduces the risk of poor hiring decisions and gives you greater confidence in your people decisions. This enables more motivated and engaged staff, higher employee productivity and better long term retention.

Our psychometric assessments are based on 30+ years of scientific research by leading psychometricians and psychologists.

Common Myths About Psychometric Profiling Tests
Personality Tests Can Be Faked
While a candidate can always lie on a self-report test, we have integrated a series of rigorous checks into our assessments which assess if someone is trying to manipulate their results to gain a favourable impression.
Psychometric tests will reveal private information or secrets
Personality assessments are simply tools for assessing people’s observable behaviour traits and workplace preferences. They are not psychoanalysis and won’t uncover private information.
Psychometric tests are only for recruitment
While incredibly useful for hiring, psychometrics have a broad range of other applications post recruitment and are used by thousands of organisations to better manage, motivate and train people.
