Aptitude or Cognitive Psychometric Tests

These tests are typically timed and inform you on candidates’ solid and candied intelligence which are important predictors of people’s ability to think strategically, grasp the ‘bigger picture’, quickly integrate new information, solve problems, effectively communicate information, produce effective reports, as well as use verbal and numerical information to make informed business decisions.

Careers in Ghana offer customised batteries of psychometric tests to target specific areas of cognitive ability. Tests are drawn from six main cognitive aptitude types including:

  • Abstract Reasoning – measures the individual’s problem solving skills, ability to quickly learn new information, ability to think strategically.
  • Verbal Reasoning – measures the individual’s written communication skills, analytical abilities, ability to quickly identify critical issues from written material such as company reports and marketing documents.
  •  Emotional Reasoning – measures the extent to which individuals are able to identify what emotions others are feeling in a given situation and to predict their future emotional responses. It is a key competency in ‘connecting with people’ and building rapport and good working relationships
  • Spatial Reasoning – measures the individual’s ability to correctly identify proportions of objects, to visually reorient objects in order to fit them together in a certain physical space and the ability to identify changes in the physical environment (which may result in work safety incidents). Competencies relevant to this measure include layout and space utilisation, flexibility, identification and solving of work safety issues.
  •  Mechanical Reasoning - measures candidates’ ability to perceive and understand the kinetic role of visual objects. These motion-and-effect tasks are indicative of the techniques used in everyday performance of realistic problem solving tasks. This test takes a diagrammatical form and requires candidates to understand the subsequent effects of the configuration of certain elements.
