Psychometric testing is now a fundamental part of recruitment. Even so, every day more companies are integrating it as part of their process in getting the right people for the job. Motor Industry Recruitment is now offering you the chance to create your own behavioural profile.

A psychometric profile can be an excellent addition to your CV. Employers will get a better understanding about what makes you tick and how you behave. You will also understand what information an employer will be looking at if you are asked to complete a psychometric test as part of an application.

There are many forms of psychometric analysis. MIR uses the internationally recognised DISC version.

What does DISC measure?

DISC measures four factors of an individual's behaviour: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. They can be characterised as assertiveness, communication, patience and structure.

DISC also interprets the relationships between these factors. For example, a highly Dominant person with a high level of Influence will behave quite differently to an equally Dominant individual with a low level of Influence. The factors combine like this to generate (theoretically) around one million different profiles.

However, don't take our word for it. As you can see from the following quote, psychometric testing is fast becoming an integral part of the recruitment process.

"It has been estimated that some 70 per cent of UK organisations test their workforce either for personality or ability before making a job offer or conferming a promotion."
