Why should you prepare for the personality test?

Identifying the personality traits which will be required in the job and understanding how they will be assessed, is the key to your success in the personality test.  This knowledge, coupled with an understanding of how to ensure you demonstrate that you possess the appropriate personality traits, will allow you to show your true potential to your future employer.

There are a number of popular personality tests used in the market. Each test measures different personality traits or behavioural styles. Therefore, understanding what the personality test you will be taking measures, how it measures your personality, and what type of personality traits are important to your employer, is vital in getting you through the personality test and into your dream job.

Why our personality test preparation is unique

Backed by years of industry experience IPC UK’s personality test preparation solutions are effective and relevant. Our courses and practice tests have been developed by organisational psychologists who have worked closely with employers and have extensive experience in administering personality tests and assessing thousands of job applicants.

IPC UK’s preparation solutions allow you to tailor your personality test preparation to meet your needs – you can take our short online personality course, practise an online personality test, receive feedback on your personality test from one of our psychologists, or participate in a psychometric test workshop. Designed to be short and focused, our personality preparation solutions still deliver all you need to help you succeed. Flexible, easy to follow courses enable you to spend longer on areas you are finding harder to grasp, and to keep repeating a lesson until you fully understand the issue. You can take the course or test from your home or from anywhere with a broadband Internet connection.

Online practice personality test

Our online practice personality tests measure work-related personality traits such as leadership, people management, ability to work in teams, ability to work under pressure, and many more.Designed to help you identify and learn more about your personality traits, the practice personality test will also help you understand which of these you should emphasise in the actual test to get the job you applied for. For example, if you applied for a marketing role, it is important that you know whether your personality profile demonstrates creative thinking, acceptance of new ideas, the capacity to manage stakeholders, etc. The practice personality test covers all of this information and more. 

You will:

  • receive unlimited access to practise a 185-question online personality test based on actual tests used by employers
  • get a comprehensive report on what employers are likely to understand from your score on 30 work-related personality traits
