I am writing about Engineers. In the course of my training programmes I found that Engineers have poor analytical abilities. In fact it is analytical ability that separates engineer from non-engineer. Nevertheless, while doing numerical examples, I found my participants, across the spectrum of industries expecting me to do the spoon feeding. This feedback is from other trainers also who conduct technical trainings. We the trainers, in zeal to satisfy their customers, end up in ladle feeding. If this is not sufficient, then possibly in future we will end in spade feeding!
Can a psychometric test detect analytical abilities?

Thanks for sharing your views, we do understand the kind of issue you are facing during your training sessions with engineers and vital role of analytical abilities for engineers.
However psychometric test can detect analytical abilities of engineers or any individual.
We do have some psychometric test which can judge the candidate on following dimensions:
Verbal Ability, Numeric Ability, Logical Reasoning, Critical Thinking: Verbal Reasoning, Argument Analysis, Thinking As Hypothesis Testing, Likelihood, Uncertainty, Decision Making and Problem Solving.
If you wish to have more details, I will mail that to you.

Further to the ground-level realities as mentioned by Dinesh Divekar, does VTS test for an individual's Commitment to the job [meaning stability] & the integrity aspects of his/her psyche?
Without getting into the terminology/nomenclature like BFSI, EPP, etc, I get differing feedback [often 180 deg variance] from different vendors whether such human traits can be evaluated using Psychometric tests.....be it during the hiring process or @ any other phase of HR processes of an employee.
