What is psychometric testing?
The most popular use of psychometric testing is in the workplace, 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 reasoning tests are all forms of psychometric profiling.

- ADD and ADHD
- autism spectrum disorder
- anxiety and depression
- behavioural difficulties
- brain injury
