Employment Personality Tests Decoded
Includes Sample and Practice Tests for Self-Assessment

At least 30 percent of American companies, from American Express and
Bank of America and IBM to Marriott, Proctor & Gamble, Time Warner, and a
host of smaller firms, subject their employees to one or more personality
tests each year. Why do they do it?

Employers want to hire and retain employees who are
qualified, confident, resilient, even-tempered, and loyal. Personality
assessments, like coaches, help them identify potential problems. The
corporate world is intense. Employers need to know how their staff will deal with the inevitable pull of priorities between a regimented corporate life and family responsibilities.

Under normal conditions—and under stress—how do you deal with conflicts, solve problems, and arrive at results? Will you overlook important details? Find it difficult to interact with your colleagues? Disrupt a team? Threaten your supervisor?

Employers care how you make sense of the world because they want you to be reliable—as reliable as the test they’re subjecting you to. You will be hired—or retained—because the test shows you will pose the least financial risk to your employer.

Can these tests be “beaten”? The short answer is no. But you can certainly learn more about them and, based on that knowledge, have a better idea of the answers each test is looking for.

Employment Personality Tests Decoded will show you:
• Why corporations require tests.
• Details of the most popular tests.
• How to prepare for each type of test.
• How to assess your score.
• What good (positive) attitudes employers want to see on personality
assessments and profiles.
• How to solve problems, get results, and simplify answers for clarity.
• Your legal rights when taking corporate personality assessments.
• How to ace team-building and leadership assessments, even under stress.

With Employment Personality Tests Decoded, you’ll never again have to
worry that you will fail to get the job you want—or keep the job you
love—because you couldn’t pass the personality test!

Excerpt

You will be hired—or retained—because an employer or human resources manager decides that the personality assessment you just took shows that you will pose the least financial risk to your employer.

A personality test also may give the team you're working with an idea of how you make improved (good) decisions (how you decide) while working under the stress of increasingly reduced time allotted to you in order to make that decision along with increasing amounts of new information coming at you.
