TalentHR Psychometric Assessments:

Cognitive (Aptitude) Ability

Aptitude tests are designed to measure work-related cognitive capacity – whether or not a candidate has the intellectual capacity to perform in their job. Cognitive ability tests are a very dynamic predictor of future work performance as they are able to test a candidate’s ability to respond to situations to “think on their feet” and to ascertain whether or not they are capable of acquiring new skills, processing new information and applying strategic thinking when problem solving. This type of ability is factual and is directly linked to past experiences, maturity, accumulated knowledge and understanding. We access to a range of aptitude tests that measure difference aspects of intelligence, with the most common tests measuring verbal, numerical, mechanical and abstract reasoning.

Behavioral (Temperament)

Temperament (or personality) testing provides a clear understanding of an individual’s behavioural pattern, opinions, beliefs and motivators. This type of testing can reveal how they might perform when under pressure, how they relate to others, and their style of collaboration, ability to think intuitively or objectively, and their ability to show self-control or be flexible.

An individual’s temperament will affect their ability to succeed in a role and within an organisation. The importance of matching the correct candidate with the desired temperament to the right role is of paramount importance in creating and maintaining a productive team and work culture.

Emotional Intelligence (EI)

Emotional Intelligence (EI) affects the way we think, feel and act. The influence of our EI has over our priorities, choices and willingness to learn is significant with some experts claiming that our EI could be responsible for as much as 80% of our success.

Research demonstrates that people with a high EI tend to communicate better, are better equipped at perceiving, using and understanding their own emotions as well as those of others, are generally more agreeable and open and are less likely to engage in risky behaviours such as smoking, drinking, drug abuse and violence.

As an employer, there are clear benefits to understanding your future employee’s EI. It can be the difference between a successful or a risky hire – the latter having the potential for dire consequences. Many of our clients use our globally renowned Emotional Intelligence testing as part of the assessment stage for their final shortlisted candidates as well as for existing leaders. It can help you assess how the candidate is likely to handle the job – their interactions with others and their decision-making abilities – and can be key to a successful hire or promotion.

Behavioral (Temperament)

Temperament (or personality) testing provides a clear understanding of an individual’s behavioural pattern, opinions, beliefs and motivators. This type of testing can reveal how they might perform when under pressure, how they relate to others, and their style of collaboration, ability to think intuitively or objectively, and their ability to show self-control or be flexible.
