In this afternoon session, you will have the opportunity to complete a widely used measure of personality that Psychologists use in recruitment/selection and promotion schemes to help employers get to know applicants' strengths and development opportunities.
After receiving a brief introduction to the theory behind personality and personality testing, you will score your own personality assessment under the direction of a Psychologist, who will also guide you on how to interpret your individual results.
The aim of this session is to provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your own personality dispositions, and understand how you as an individual tend to approach various work, life and academic situations. This experience will provide you with insights into your own behaviour which will be useful when making decisions about your future career pathway, help you to improve your approach to studying and also identify personal development goals. It will also provide you with a general insight into psychological testing and the work of a Psychologist.
Please note that numbers are limited due to the practical nature of administering a personality assessment, and the costs associated with the tests which are being covered by the School of Psychology.
