Psychological tests are standard procedure in recruitment processes. Nowadays even small businesses use psychological tests during selection process. Psychological tests are set of tasks or questions, which allow to obtain samples of behavior, on the basis of which some psychological traits can be assumed. In the case of tests use in recruitment process, we study traits associated with job tasks.
We offer several tests:

The task is to identify the missing element, that completes a pattern. This test has satisfactory psychometrical properties.
APIS Battery of Tests is used to measure intelligence. This tool measures crystallized intelligence , which represents knowledge and skills gained during life. This battery of tests measures 4 types of abilities: abstract – logical, verbal, visual spatial and social.
Questionnaires, which measures job competencies:

Carrer Capital Questionnaire – is a personality questionnaire based on scientifically reliable concept MBTI (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, created by K. Cook Briggs and I. Briggs Myers) of sixteen basic types of personality.
The concept of personality types, on which this tool is based assumes that individuals:
- have different preferences in concentration of attention (extraversion or introversion)
- differ in preferences in gaining information (analytic and intuitive approach)
- have different preferences in decision-making (through analysis or through emotions)
- treat outside world in different ways (by judging or observation)

It allows to define perfect work specifics and environment, motivators and demotivators, preferable management style, best form of delegation of tasks and type of tasks, in which particular individual will have chance for self-realization and success. Results show personality type of candidate.

CISS is recommended as tool in selection of candidates for jobs associated with stress and time or environment pressure.
|We also offer competency tests, which allow best candidate selection for job profile. These tools prevent mistakes in recruitment and additional costs associated with hiring wrong employee. Tests allow to objectively measure the level of each competency and to compare the results between candidates (each candidate receives the same set of questions or tasks).|
