Psychometric Assessments


 

One of psychology's major achievements has been the development of objective and standardised tests, know as psychometric assessments. I use various psychometric assessments to assess children, teenagers and adults for various purposes. Testing provides objective information and allows one to compare an individual's functioning to that of others the same age and gender. This makes the information gathered meaningful as certain behaviours are normal at certain stages of life and in specific contexts.

I also use psychometric assessments to assist clients in the process of becoming more self-aware (for example of their own personality, unique strengths, values or sources of stress).

I often use psychometric assessments as part of the selection of employees for high-risk occupations, such as pilots, aviation engineers, nuclear power operators, and more.

I have completed international accreditation training for the following psychometric assessments:

  • Emotional Quotient Inventory  (EQ-i)

  • Hogan Assessment Suite (includes the HPI, HDS and MVPI)

  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI® - Step I and Step II)

  • 16PF 5th Edition Questionnaire (16PF®5)

  • Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2

  • Strengthscope
