字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント 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.

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.
