Psychometric tests are designed to assess the cognitive abilities and personality traits of an individual. Knowing one’s own abilities, helps in knowing our own strengths and weaknesses which in turn help us in choosing the career/course most suited for us.
Psychometric tests are of two types:
- Test for Abilities or Aptitude
- Test for Personality
- Test for Interest
The result of psychometric tests tells us a lot about our own selves. It is important specifically when we are at a stage where we have to choose a career, a course or a stream. These results help us to be 100% sure that the course or stream that we are choosing is something that we can do well. Abilities or aptitude are some innate qualities that we are born with. For example, some people sing very well even without any particular training in music. We would say that their ‘ability’ to sing is high. Now that person can become a professional singer much more easily than a person who does not have that ability. Similarly, all of us have different levels of ability for numbers, for language, for reasoning and logic, for mechanics etc. These different abilities have a scope in different fields of career. Personality is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual's distinctive character. It also plays a major role in the shaping of our career. For example, a person who is an extrovert, who loves to interact with people will not do well in a job where he has to sit alone all day in a cabin and work. He would do well if he was a part of a team. Interest also plays a major role in our career. As we all know, we are willing to work hard at a job that we find interesting. We do not want to do anything that we feel is boring.
