Surviving the Personality Test....

Companies are increasingly giving job candidates personality tests as part of the hiring process. But they're not trying to discern whether you're an extrovert or an introvert. These are specific evaluations -- often 200 or more questions -- that attempt to get to the heart of your personality, values and the things make you successful & or not. Hiring managers say these tests more accurately predict whether a candidate will be successful instead of solely relying on a face-to-face interview. Plus, they're standardized so everyone gets the same questions unlike in a job interview.

Face-to-face interviews are used in conjunction with the personality tests. With so many seemingly qualified candidates applying for jobs, this is another way to find the right one. One reason hiring managers and organizational psychologists like them is that candidates can't charm a personality test.

But can you cheat? Psychologists say absolutely not. The test designers can tell if a candidate is trying to give answers they think the manager wants to hear. "People have no idea what employers are looking for because with personality tests there are no right and wrong answers," says John W. Jones, president and chief psychologist for IPAT, a company that develops personality tests.

Their recommendation for prospective employees: View it as an extension of the interview and be totally honest.

"If people try to game the system, we jokingly say the person faked their way out of a job," says John Weiner, vice president of products and services for the testing firm, PSI.

"It's possible to distort your answers but not possible to create profile [employers] want."

Most personality tests are given at the same time as the first round of interviews. Glenn DeBiasi, vice president of human resources for Alex Lee, a Hickory, N.C., food holding company, has been giving them for 10 years to everyone from clerks in the grocery store to top-level executives. "Some people are better cut out for the work and the culture," says DeBiasi. "The better we can do with fitting someone with a job and the culture here, the better it is for the company and the applicant."

At Alex Lee, all candidates are given similar variations of the test, but what they're looking for is different for each candidate. "To be a successful computer geek versus someone out there selling the products requires different personality traits," says DeBiasi.

For instance, to find out about a candidate's work ethic they might ask: "How often have you had to give up your leisure time to work" or "If you have plans on a Friday evening and your employer has an important deadline to meet, would you cancel private plans?"

Try to decipher this one: "When I was a child, people thought I was really cute."

"That identifies good salespeople, because they think they're fabulously cute," says Robert Hogan, founder of the test design firm Hogan Assessment Systems.

Another sample question: "I take a different way home from work every night."

"That gets to a candidate's creativity," says Hogan. "The really good ones will say, yes and I feel really guilty when I don't."

Murray Barrick, a professor of human resources at Texas A&M University says candidates are more likely to be honest and admit their faults when they're not dealing with a person. "It leads to more honesty when you're sitting down with a piece of paper," he says. "If you're looking someone right in eye you're not going to say, 'I give my best 90 percent of the time.' "

Dear Members,

I have something to share regarding the reports of which you all are talking. I am not denying its fariness because many medium n large scale organization are doing psychometric tests to identify and recruit the candidate that they want. It also helps them for further process of employee's performance evaluation.

I came across with the new test recently. I don't know if you people knows it or not. It is called Biometrics Multi-Intelligence Test which is done by the machine. The loophole of psychometric test is that any person can influence the results of it, but while talking about the Multi-Intelligence test done through Biometrics is wholly dependent on the individual's biological behavior. This report give a information of individual like where he is good or bad at, and also his traits. This will help organization to avoid wrong recruitment, in their performance appraisal, promotion whether horizontal or vertical etc. Because nobody can influence his/her body, its just the mind which plays drama which is seen in lot many interviews and after sometime the organization feels that they had done wrong recruitment.

I hope this information will help you in further assessment of the candidates.

One more thing, this report is valid for lifetime. Its a one time investments from which an employee as well as employer knows where to make efforts.

Regards,

Yash Sharma
