Find the name of a psychometric testing system


I have seen a quick psychometric test system used which involves chosing ones favourite shape eg a triangle, circle or square. I want to find out more about this system - and its name.

    What is it that you are actually aiming to achieve? What is the context of your requirement?

  2. British Psychological Society
    I can’t help you on the name of the test but I would as an applicant have concerns about facing a test that by choosing my favourite shapes would give you a true picture of me.

    The controlling body for psychometrics is the British Psychological Society (0116 254 9568)

    True psychometric testing requires the user to be licenced. Many organisations run Level A & B training.

    I’d echo Iain & Lawrence’s comments – sounds dubious, unless there is robust evidence to support its use – reliability, validity, norms, equal ops data etc.

    I’ve heard of the test you mention – a colleague was exposed to it in a health authority setting as someone’s ‘pet’ test – but can’t remember what it was called.

    I’d be cautious of using it. Conall

  4. Psychometric Party Game !
    I’ve seen this used on a number of training seminars , mainly as a bit of fun , or a warm-up session. The “characteristics” which an individual shows from their choice of shape are so general that whichever shape/personality you choose , everyone can have an affinity with.
    An interesting parlour game, but of no real relevance on it’s own merit .
