essentially aims to measure an individual’s relatively stable behavioral tendencies preferences. It focuses on assessing how people typically behave, the way they relate to others or the way they approach or solve a problem. Personality testing typically entails measuring motivation, values, emotional intelligence (EQ), communication style, conflict management style etc.
At Shell consultants Caring Minds we undertake personality testing for the following groups:
Clients seeking mental health treatment at the clinic
For this group of people, we have standardized personality tests which include projective techniques, self-report inventories, clinician-administered inventories, etc. We use personality tests that have been established as diagnostic tools for various psychiatric disorders.
Clients seeking therapy/counseling
Personality testing is useful not only to diagnose mental disorders but also plays a pivotal role during psychotherapy wherein such testing may reflect upon the ongoing dysfunctional patterns in the client's life and may also reveal concerns about which the client is not openly discussing.
Clients seeking fitness certificates
Personality testing plays a crucial role in cases where the client is seeking a psychological fitness certificate for job purposes, for approval to go ahead with surgeries, etc. A major plus point of personality testing is that it also helps to detect malingering of symptoms, social desirability effect and lying by the way in which a client answers the tests. Essentially, this implies that most personality tests can detect when a client is faking and when he /she is answering genuinely; this helps in decisions to related to issuing of fitness certificates.
