Do you think it is right that some companies use psychometric testing in the interview process?

    Great answer! I totally forgot about positions requiring great responsibility for the lives of others. I also agree with you about interviews. Meeting people face to face can reveal so much more I think.

    I was about to answer this question and then I perused your answer. Excellent work, you have indeed "nailed" it...

    I'll look up the Brain Sketch. It sounds really interesting! I think you're right though - psychometric testing is certainly not foolproof.

    I love taking them too because the whole thing fascinates me. Have you done the Myers Briggs test yet?

    I think, personally, that you won't know how someone will do in a job until months after you've hired them, so the less time spent interviewing and testing the better. The candidate may accept another job if you take too long deciding/testing.
