|Psychological assessment is a process of testing that uses a combination of techniques to help arrive at some hypotheses about a person and their behavior, personality and capabilities. Psychological assessment is also referred to as psychological testing, or performing a psychological battery on a person. Psychological testing is nearly always performed by a licensed psychologist, or a psychology trainee (such as an intern). Psychologists are the only profession that is expertly trained to perform and interpret psychological tests.Psychological tests are part of the field of psychology known as psychometrics. Psychometrics measures behavior, personality, and aptitude using surveys. After a person has completed the survey, their answers are scaled to provide a general overview of their personal characteristics.|
|People often have a difficult time accurately assessing their own behavior and understanding how their behavior causes other people to perceive them. Psychological testing allows people the opportunity to get a glimpse of how they appear to the outside world based on answers to very specific questions about behavior, attitudes, history, and preferences. Test questions often ask people to think about specific types of interactions, which can make it easier to assess behavior.Thus, in order to get the most accurate assessment, it is important to answer questions as honestly as possible. Focus on answering questions based upon what you actually think and do, not based upon what you wish you do or hope other people think you do. An honest assessment of your personality can be challenging and surprising, but is also a powerful opportunity for changing problematic behaviors, growing psychologically, and understanding why you do the things you do. These tests are completely anonymous, and your results will never be used for anything other than giving you a measure of your unique strengths and weaknesses.
