Psychometric Testing

Psychometric testing is a useful tool when recruiting and according to the Graduate Recruitment Survey 2007 c.90% of the business surveyed said the results of psychometric tests had some influence on their final decisions.

Psychometric testing is being used more widely these days because qualifications and experience are not always sufficiently reliable measures of workplace skills, particularly for softer skills such as communication and time management.

Depending on the type of test, they can either help to draw up an outline of the candidates personality or measure their numerical and verbal abilities. Tests can be used to look at the ‘hidden’ strengths and weaknesses of a person.

As an example, below are a couple of the characteristics that might be measured together with an explanation of the results:



Change orientated

A high score here would imply that the candidate likes changing environments and would thrive in a job that provides it


A low score here would imply that the candidate does not rates advanced planning very highly and so job with a lot of deadlines might not be suitable for them

So if you were recruiting a book keeper you would look for results showing a low score in change and the high score for time managed. Conversely, the results would be reversed if you are looking for a new sales manager.

Testing is especially effective when you do not know the person but they can also be used for a promotion or perhaps in a team that is not performing as well as it should. There are a number of psychometrics tests available i.e. 16PF, OPQ and SHL with each measuring a different set of characteristics. In2HR can advise on the best test to suit your needs and our trained assessors carry out the testing and reporting on your behalf.
