What I like about The Quest Profiler® is the wealth of different outputs it provides, from team styles to conflict handling, and from culture matching to competencies. You would normally have to use multiple personality tools to achieve this, but they all come from the same 25 minute questionnaire!

Benefits of Aptitude Testing

Help Identify Strengths & Weaknesses

These remarkable Aptitude tests can help to identify an individual's vocational strengths and weaknesses. This therefore can help to determine whether or not they will succeed in a particular job or industry.

Identify An Individual's Level Of Competence

This helps recruiters to ensure that they are hiring the highest quality candidates who will succeed within the role, businesses and industry.

Standardised Testing

Aptitude tests are fully standardised tests, this means that they are scored in a very consistent manner and benchmarked against the performance of others. The results of these tests therefore provide much more accurate and fair results and much better insights into an individual's skills.

Allow Employers To Identify Skill Gaps

When used internally within a business employers can see the skill levels of their employees. This can then help to identify any skill gaps within the business which can then be addressed through training and development courses.

Preparing for an Aptitude Test

Aptitude tests are designed to give an insight into a person and understand their qualities, skills and natural talents. You may prefer to prepare for the aptitude test to ensure that you use your time wisely.

You may have one or two days before the aptitude test, which is plenty of time to prepare. It may help to request information about the length of time you will have to complete it before taking some practice tests. This will give you the opportunity to use your time effectively. It is an excellent method to relieve pressure and stress during the actual test, as you'll already have a clear understanding of the expectations in place.
