Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals' mental capabilities and behavioural style. Psychometric tests are designed to measure candidates' suitability for a role based on the required personality characteristics and aptitude (or cognitive abilities). They identify the extent to which candidates' personality and cognitive abilities match those required to perform the role. Employers use the information collected from the psychometric test to identify the hidden aspects of candidates that are difficult to extract from a face-to-face interview.
Psychometric tests typically consist of numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning and diagrammatic reasoning tests. Situational judgement tests are increasing in popularity and are used as an initial screening method for the biggest graduate scheme employers. If you are looking to practice a psychometric test there are a wider variety of professionally developed psychometric tests at Practice Aptitude Tests.com.
