Who Should this Test be Given to?

Anyone applying for a technical position but with little or no dealings with people. If the position involves a need to deal with people then the People and Logic test should be used instead.

Test Details

Ten multiple choice options with five possible answers to each problem. The problem solving will not depend on memory detail for the correct answers. The test is made up of a series of logic, deduction and discernment problems.

Can this Test be Done at Home?

Yes, but this is a test that another person could help them with. The test is timed so that if it takes them more than 15 minutes you should be suspect. It is unlikely the applicant would ask for help because s/he wouldn’t know who to ask unless the candidate can’t read English.
