Traditionally, occupational psychologists are associated with two kinds of tests:
- test of ability (e.g. verbal reasoning, general intelligence, management skills)
- personality tests (e.g. extraversion, conformity)
The uses of such tests can include some of the following:
- candidate selection
- training & development
- organisational development
In order to conduct such tests, it is important that the individual doing so has undergone appropriate training in test administration.
