PTS Insight Testing Services

Psychometric tests are an essential part of recruitment and development processes, helping organisations to identify talent and develop to its full potential.

The term “psychometric” is as the word describes ‘psycho’ – the mind and ‘metric’ – to measure, so all psychometric tests or and assessments are some form of measurement of mental capability. For psychometric tests to be credible, valid and robust, it is essential they are continually standardised.

Psychometric tests can be used to assess personality, intelligence, aptitude and specific skills. They typically fall into 2 main categories:

  • Personality profiling assessments measure typical behaviour, individual tendencies and preferences. They can assess many traits including the ways in which how individuals relate to each other, deal with emotions (both their own and others), stress, and their preferred leadership style. Whilst personality profiling is used extensively in selection, it is also a very powerful tool in personal and leadership development.
  • Aptitude and Ability testing measures an individual’s ability in a particular skill, typically verbal, numerical and critical thinking skills. These tests look at both potential and current ability.
