Psychometric Testing at Harley Therapy™ London

Need testing to determine a specific condition, and ensure the right support and treatment is found? To file a legal report? Help you with your career? Or just curious about your own behaviour or IQ? Psychometric testing can help. 

What is psychometric testing? 

The most popular use of psychometric testing is in workplaces, where potential employees can be offered tests like the Myers-Briggs Type indicator (MBTI) to help establish their strengths. 

But psychometric testing is actually an umbrella term for a large range of standardised assessments. They help psychologists measure the ways we think and behave, looking at things like skills, knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and personality traits. 

IQ testing, personality tests, numerical reasoning tests, and verbal reasonsing tests are all forms of psychometric profiling.

What can psychometric testing help with?

Psychometric testing can correctly identify and treat a range of issues in children and adults, including:

  • ADD and ADHD 
  • autism spectrum disorder
  • anxiety and depression 
  • behavioural difficulties 
  • brain injury 
  • gifted and talented
  • IQ testing
  • neurological issues.
