How to pass Personality / Career assessment tests?

The theory of various personality tests in recruitment is that different personality types respond to questions in a different way. Your psychological type can be a predictor of a career choice that is a good fit for your personality. These tests ask a series of questions that help match your personality with a career (jobsearch.about.com). Martin Gibbons suggested on pharmiweb.com that, personality profilers do not consider your education, qualifications or experience. They purely look at your personality. It is not an exact science and potential employers often miss-use the system and depend upon it too much. Some people come across differently than they would imagine so it is important that you know how you are coming across. They are not perfect and they do get it wrong. Do not assume you know what your report says until you have tried a report and read the results. An employer will delve into your perceived weaknesses according to the report, so it is better that you know what these may be and prepare some questions. Everyone has weaknesses in their report. Do not try and cheat your results answer honestly. There are two reasons for this • You do not know what type the employer is looking for • You do not know how to reproduce this type It is also possible for experienced profile analysers to tell if you are trying to trick the system.
