Hi there, my name is Richard McMunn from the.interview training company, PassMyInterview.com,.and in this video tutorial, I am going to.teach you how to pass a personality test!.So, if you have a personality test coming.up, I strongly encourage you to watch this.tutorial, in full, from beginning to end,.because it will make a big difference to your.preparation..It will alleviate any nerves that you may.have, but also you will know, by the end of.this tutorial, exactly what they are looking.for, from you, when you answer personality.test questions..Now, these questions are the type that give.you a statement and then you have to either.answer them, true or false..So, the statement is: “I always take risks.”.and you would have to honestly answer that.as either true or false, or it might be presented.in a different way..“I find routine boring.”.And then you would be given options from one.to five..1, you STRONGLY DISAGREE with that statement,.2..You DISAGREE..3 You neither agree or disagree, which is.NEUTRAL, or 4 you AGREE..Or 5 STRONGLY AGREE, and then you have to.choose which one..So, they are quite confusing these statements,.and these test questions..But as I say, by the time I get to the end,.you will be competent in answering them, and.more importantly, passing them..So, before we get into it, a very warm welcome.to this personality test training tutorial..My name is Richard McMunn..I've been helping people for about 20 years.now to pass their assessments and interviews..And in this tutorial, I'm going to teach you.how to pass any kind of personality test..Please do make sure you SUBSCRIBE to the channel.by clicking the red button below the video,.and then you won't miss out..And I'd also appreciate your support if you.gave the video a LIKE..Thank you!.That always motivates me to create more content.for you..Okay, let's get straight into it..Now, before I give you a large number of example.personality test questions and how to answer.them, let's explore what a personality test.is..This is very important, because that enables.us to answer the questions correctly..A personality test is used to measure your.suitability and fit for specific job roles..I'll just quickly repeat that: a personality.test is used to measure your suitability for.specific job roles..So, the personality test statements or questions.need to be answered in line with the role.that you are applying for..I'll come onto that in more detail as we progress..Now, the test will normally assess your interpersonal.skills, your thought process, and also your.emotional capabilities..The test will normally assess your interpersonal.skills, how you get on with all of the people,.how you think about things, and also how you.respond emotionally to certain situations..You are going to be presented with a STATEMENT.and you then need to decide whether or not.that statement is an accurate representation.of the skills, qualities and/or attributes.you possess..Now, of course, it is very important that.you answer personality tests honestly..However, I am going to tell you what I would.do when I tackle a personality test, and then.you can decide yourself whether or not you.are going to replicate my process for tackling.these test questions..Personality test questions can be presented.in lots of different ways..Let's take a look at each of the different.personality test questions styles..Now, as I say, just to reiterate, although.it's obviously my duty to tell you to be 100%.honest when answering personality test questions,.I will tell you how I would personally approach.them myself..And you can decide whether or not it's something.that you want to follow..And I would suggest it is..Example personality test questions..Which of the following statements best describes.you?.Here's the statement..“I don't like meeting new people.”.“I get excited when I am asked to work on.a difficult project.”.“I tend to get stressed in pressurized situations.”.“I prefer to work alone.”.So which of those statements best describes.you?.Well, if I answer that one hundred percent.truthfully, I have to go for number four,.which is I prefer to work alone..I do..I prefer to work alone..However, if I answer that personality test.question by selecting number four, that is.probably not what they are looking for..If I read the statements and I think to myself,.and this is the way to tackle personality.tests, put yourself in the shoes of the employer,.what are they looking for?.And they are looking for somebody who gets.excited when they are asked to work on difficult.projects..Okay..So that's the answer that I would choose,.even though, number four, I do prefer to work.alone..So look, another one: which of the following.statements best describes you?.“I tend to get upset easily.”.“I don't like to analyze situations.”.“I feel uneasy in meetings with people I.do not know.”.“I will go out of my way to help new members.of the team.”.Hundred percent, the best answer is number.four, because they are looking for a personality.trait where you do help people out..All employers want people who will help people.out; new members of the team start, and they.want you to help that new person out..So, you put yourself in the shoes of the employer.or the hiring manager and you answer the questions.in that manner..With that type of personality test question,.where you are presented with a statement and.you have to pick one that best describes you,.always seek out the POSITIVE STATEMENT from.them..So, as I say, put yourself in the shoes of.the interviewer or the hiring manager..What are they looking for?.And ask yourself the following question..And when answering every type of personality.test question that comes up..What are the beneficial traits for the particular.job that you are being interviewed for?.And this will help you to tackle them..So I've already done the work for you..These are the top 10 skills, qualities and.personality traits all employers look for!.They look for people who have STRONG COMMUNICATION.SKILLS..If you get asked a personality test question.based around communication skills, then choose.the positive one; the one that demonstrates.that you have got great communication skills..Also, HONESTY AND INTEGRITY is up there in.the top 10 list of personality traits that.they are looking for..Someone who is FLEXIBLE in their role..Having PERSISTENCE, DETERMINATION and SELF.DISCIPLINE and also WORKING WITH OTHER PEOPLE.harmoniously..The next set, five, you are someone who is.LOYAL..You have PROBLEM SOLVING capabilities..You are someone who LEARNS THINGS QUICKLY..You are SELF-MOTIVATED and you WORK EFFECTIVELY.UNDER PRESSURE..So, if you want to pause the video, just go.back and write all of those down..Those are the top 10 skills, qualities and.personality traits that employers look for..When you are tackling personality test type.questions, look out for these and you'll see.them in there and answer them based on the.fact that you have all of those 10 skills..Let's have a look at some different personality.test questions now..True or false type..I am easily irritated..So there is that statement and you have to.answer it..True or false?.I get nervous talking to people..I don't know..True or false?.Two more..I remain calm in stressful situations..True or false?.I often get annoyed with people who get things.wrong..True or false?.Think about those traits that we've just gone.through..Working with people harmoniously is one of.them, the important top 10 traits..So, if you were presented with that statement,.I often get annoyed with people who get things.wrong, how should you answer it?.You already know the correct answer..How would I personally answer true or false.type personality test questions?.I am easily irritated..I have to be honest, I do get easily irritated.at times, but that would not be the way to.answer it, because a team member who gets.easily irritated is less likely to be able.to work under pressure..So, I would answer that as false..OK..That's how I would answer it, because I'm.not thinking to myself, so, you know, I get.easily irritated..Let's tell them that I am putting myself in.the shoes of the hiring manager..And a lot of people say that's wrong..You shouldn't do that..And I respect that, totally..But this is how I tackle personality test.questions..I get nervous talking to people I don't know..So remember one of them?.The top one was communication skills..If you know that the top personality trait.is communication skills in any role, then.communicating effectively is an essential.aspect of a work, then you would say false..I do not get nervous talking to people..I don't know..I remain calm in stressful situations..So handling stress, that was another one of.the traits that we came up with..That's an essential part of daily working.life..So we would say yes..True..I do remain calm in stressful situations,.and then I often get annoyed with people who.get things wrong..Anger or frustration are not helpful emotions.whilst at work..However, patience with other people is helpful..So you would choose false..If you remember on my top 10 list of great.personality traits, skills, qualities and.attributes, the last one was WORKING HARMONIOUSLY.WITH OTHER PEOPLE..So you would have to choose false with that.one..Let's take a look at some other ones, some.tougher personality test type questions..These are the ones where you're presented.with strongly disagree, disagree, neutral,.agree or strongly agree..These are, on the face of it, tougher..However, let me give you some tips for answering.these..You are presented with that statement, and.there is one: “I find it difficult to motivate.myself” and you have to answer it as either.(1) strongly disagree..(2) disagree..(3) neutral..(4) agree or (5) strongly agree..I would choose STRONGLY DISAGREE, because.remember, self-motivation was one of those.top 10 traits remember, that I put up?.So we need to say that we don't find it difficult.motivating myself, because an employer wants.you to be a self-starter, someone who gets,.you know, gets going, takes responsibility.for completing tasks..And they are self-motivated..They don't need somebody else to say, come.on, let's get the work done..You will do it yourself..Now, when presented with personality test.questions of this nature, I advise against.consistently going for either STRONGLY AGREE.or STRONGLY DISAGREE..A lot of people do that..They just go right at the end of the spectrum.for each of them, and that is not the way.to tackle them because these personality tests.will then identify that you're not answering.them truthfully..My advice is, to where possible, stay on the.correct side of the scale based on what you.believe the employer or hiring manager is.looking for..You would either go for Strongly Disagree.or Disagree, and I'll give you some examples.as we progress..Don't worry..Agree, or five, Strongly Agree, and mix them.up..If you strongly agree on something, then choose.it..If you just disagree on something and then.choose that as well..Now, you'll also see that part in the center,.which is neutral..Now sometimes the neutral aspect is referred.to as NEITHER AGREE or DISAGREE..OK, but we're going to use NEUTRAL for the.sake of this tutorial, and I'll explain when.I choose neutral as we go through..Let's now take a look at a few more example.personality test questions..I find it easy to form close relationships..And then we're presented with strongly disagree,.disagree, neutral, agree or strongly agree..Now, employers like to know that their employees.are people who most people will be able to.get along with, and work with..Remember, one of the top 10 traits was ‘working.closely with others harmoniously’..So I would say that I AGREE..I find it easy to form close relationships..Why did I not choose STRONGLY AGREE?.Because sometimes, someone would come into.a room and I might think, well, you're not.my kind of person, but I will get on with.you, and I will try my hardest for the sake.of my work, and for the sake of the team..So I will choose AGREE on that basis..So, have a go at this one yourself..It's your turn to try a personality test question..I'm going to put this up on the screen, and.in the comments section below, tell me how.you would answer it?.“We live in an unfair world.”.Do you (1) STRONGLY DISAGREE (2) DISAGREE.(3) NEUTRAL (you neither agree or disagree).(4) you AGREE or (5), you STRONGLY AGREE..Please put your answer to this personality.test question in the comments section below.the video and tell me why you've chosen your.option!.This is a difficult one..“We live in an unfair world.”.I will tell you later on how I would personally.answer this question..OK, let's a look at some more..“I am reluctant to get involved with other.people's welfare.”.Strongly disagree, disagree (3) neutral, (4).agree or (5) strongly agree..I am reluctant to get involved with other.people's welfare..Now, being a supportive and trusting member.of a team is beneficial to the organizational.goals..I would put DISAGREE there..OK..I am reluctant to get involved with other.people's welfare..I disagree..I WILL get involved with other people's welfare..So, if they're not feeling good at work, you.know, they're upset about something..Or I can detect that they are not working.effectively as they normally would as part.of the team, I'll get involved and find out.why..Because that's for the benefit of the team..So we're thinking about what the employer.wants from us in their response..“I refuse to concede an argument.”.This is a difficult one..(1) strongly disagree (2) disagree (3) neutral.(4) agree (5) strongly agree..Now, a person who refuses to concede an argument.is less likely to be compliant at work..Put yourself in the shoes of the hiring manager.or the recruiter..Okay..So compliance is a valuable trait amongst.employees..People who will do what they are told to do..Compliance is a good thing..I would STRONGLY DISAGREE..And I actually don't mind conceding arguments.at times..Okay, let's move on to some more..“I make an effort to get to know everyone.I work with” and they're presented with.one, two, three or four or five..What's the answer?.So, knowing your work colleagues’ strengths.and weaknesses will help the team to perform.better..Being a supportive team worker is a great.quality, so I would agree..I do make an effort to get to get to know.everyone that I work with..Some more: “I am never the leader amongst.a group of people.”.Now, this is a difficult one..I am never the leader amongst a group of people..(1) strongly disagree (2) disagree (3) neutral.(4) agree, or (5) strongly agree..Now employers want people to step up and take.the lead in difficult and stressful situations..I would put STRONGLY DISAGREE, because that.says there I am never the leader..Well, at times I might be..Okay..I might step up and lead a situation, if required..“I find it difficult to motivate myself.”.This is easy..Do you remember?.Self-discipline is a highly desirable employee.trait..I put that up earlier on..It was one of our top ten, so I would go STRONGLY.DISAGREE there..So..What about neutral?.When should you choose that middle path?.The neutral part?.So, choose neutral when you honestly and genuinely.cannot agree or disagree with the statement.presented, and it will happen at times..Here's one..“A busy lifestyle at home suggests I will.lead a busy lifestyle at work.”.Does it?.I’m not really sure..I would choose NEUTRAL for that one..A busy lifestyle at home suggests I will lead.a busy lifestyle at work..Let us now take a look at a MOCK PERSONALITY.TEST walkthrough, and I’ll go through these.at a snail's pace, the following questions,.and I want you to think about how you would.answer them yourself..So, the good news is there is normally no.time limit with personality tests, because.they want you to answer them honestly..Remember to read the questions..I want you to walk through this with me and.tell me what your answers are to each of the.questions in the comments section below..Let's get started..Question 1..I make the people I work with feel at ease..I make the people I work with feel at ease..Remember our top 10 traits working with others?.I would put STRONGLY AGREE because being able.to work with other people and making them.feel at ease is a great quality, because then.you will get the most out of them..Number two, I prefer obedient people as opposed.to carefree people..Well, I would AGREE..Now there are benefits, in some situations,.to having people who are carefree, and they’re.not too fast..However, if you work, in my opinion, in a.workforce that's obedient, and they get on.with things, and they do the jobs as required,.then that is more beneficial, in most circumstances,.to the organization..So again, remember, put yourself in the shoes.of the employer..What are they looking for?.They would want somebody who is compliant,.someone who is obedient..In most cases, no threat..Don't forget to tell me how you would answer.these in the comments section below..You have to look after number one..You have to look after number one..That's basically saying you've got to look.after yourself..I would STRONGLY DISAGREE, because the employer.is looking for people who will put the team.first, who will put the organizational needs.above their own..OK, so there is no ‘I’ in team, only in.the A HOLE!.Sorry..So, you have to look after number one: STRONGLY.DISAGREE..Next one, I usually adapt my behavior so I.work better with people..I usually adapt my behavior so I work better.with people..Yes, I AGREE..It’s not strongly agree, because it depends.on the other person as well..But I will usually adapt my behavior so I.work better with people, because that is helping.the team..Question number five of our personality test:.I work best if I am working in a team..Now, this is difficult, and this is where.you are putting yourself in the shoes of the.employer and the hiring manager..But don't forget, one of the very first slides.that I put up during this tutorial, I mentioned.the purpose of a personality test, and they.are designed to find out whether you have.the right skills and qualities to do the job.that you are being interviewed for..So, my answer to this one: I work best if.I'm working in a team, will very much depend.on the requirements of the job that I am applying.for..Let's say I'm applying to be an I.T..Engineer, then I would put DISAGREE because.I.T..Engineers generally work better alone..So, think about the role… are you required.to work alone, and not so much as part of.a team?.Then you would put DISAGREE..But, if you are applying, for example, to.be a nurse..Nurses work as part of teams, or firefighters,.for example..Then I would Strongly Agree..I do work best if I'm working in a team..Think about what they are looking for..Number six..I consider myself an unselfish person..I would put STRONGLY AGREE..Okay..So I am an unselfish person..I put other people first before myself..Strongly agree..Don't forget to put in the comments section.below how you would answer these..Question 7..You can't judge a book by its cover..Now, I would choose NEUTRAL for this, because.sometimes, our instincts are really good,.you know..But other times, you know, you have to give.people the opportunity to prove themselves.and present themselves..But there are times naturally as human beings,.when we DO judge people, or judge a book by.its cover..But I am going to choose neutral for that.one..Question 8..Everyone should be treated equally..This is a very tricky one..But I would AGREE everyone should be treated.equally..Question 9..We live in an unfair world..Remember, I put this one up..How do you think I'm going to answer this?.Well, I would say AGREE, because that demonstrates.that you are somebody who has empathy for.other people, which is a great trait, when.you are working as part of a team..So, some people might say, well, if you think.we live in an unfair world, then, you know,.you’re a bit of a victim..But I don't agree with that..We do generally live in an unfair world..So I would click for AGREE, because this,.I believe, shows compassion and empathy and.mercifulness..This trait indicates the extent to which a.person shows a caring and helpful persona..Question 10..I am reserved and shy..I would STRONGLY DISAGREE, OK..Because if I'm going to work at a place, an.organization, then they're going to want me.to come out of my shell and talk to other.people..Maybe I have to talk to others, you know,.outside of the organization..And if I am reserved and shy, I'm going to.struggle to do that..Question 11..I like to follow the crowd..Difficult..Well, again, it depends very much on the level.of responsibility required within the role..So, if I was applying to be a manager or a.supervisor or a team leader, I would strongly.disagree..Or, if I was going to be a non-manager, I.was applying for a non-management role, then.I would choose STRONGLY AGREE..Question 12: It is important to feel like.you are part of something big and exciting..Now, again, my answer will very much depend.on the monotonous nature of the role..If I was applying for a role as a call center.handler, for example, working in a call center,.then generally something big and exciting.is not going to happen..So, if I was going to be a call center or.admin role worker, I would choose disagree..Whereas a Project Manager, I would put strongly.agree..Number 13..I am always realistic, even if that means.being negative..I would DISAGREE with that..Okay..I'm always realistic, even if that means being.negative..I disagree..Tell me how you would answer that question?.14..I would do overtime in order to get closer.to my goals..Yes, I STRONGLY AGREE..I would do that..It shows that I'm a flexible person..Remember, I did put up at the beginning, those.top 10 traits, and one of them was flexibility..Don't forget to revisit them!.They are very, very important..Number 15..I often ‘do’ before I ‘think’..I DISAGREE with that..A better employer, sorry….A better ‘employee’ is someone who thinks.before they do things..OK, if you’ve got time, think about your.actions and think about the consequences..I hope you’ve enjoyed that so far..If you want to download my guide to
