Why should you prepare for the personality test?

Key to your success in the personality test is the understanding of the job requirements and how they are measured in the personality test. This will assist you to demonstrate to your employer that you have the relevant personality traits to perform in the job.

There are several popular personality tests used in the market. Each test measures different personality traits or behavioural styles. Therefore, understanding what your personality test measures, how it measures your personality, and what type of personality traits are important to your employer, is vital in getting you through the personality test and getting your dream job.

Why our personality test preparation is unique

IPC’s personality test preparation solutions are backed by years of industry experience. Our courses and practice tests were developed by Psychometric test experts who have worked closely with employers and have extensive experience in administering personality tests and assessing thousands of job applicants.

You can tailor your personality test preparation to meet your needs – you can take our short online personality course, practise an online personality test, receive feedback on your personality test from one of our Psychometric test experts, or participate in a psychometric test workshop. Our personality preparation solutions are designed to be short and focused but still deliver all you need to help you succeed. Courses are designed to be very easy to follow. You can spend longer on difficult areas, and keep repeating a lesson until you fully understand the issue. You can take the course or test from your home or from anywhere with a broadband Internet connection.

Online practice personality test

Our online practice personality tests measure work-related personality traits such as leadership, stakeholders’ management, ability to work in teams, ability to work under pressure, and much more.

The practice personality test is designed to help you learn about your personality traits and which of those you should emphasise in the real test to get the job you applied for. For example, if you applied for a marketing role, it is important that you know whether your personality profile demonstrates creative thinking, acceptance of new ideas, the capacity to manage stakeholders, etc. Such information regarding the role you applied for and much more is offered when taking the practice personality test.
