I have made a quick video on personality profiling and fire service recruitment for you.
The subject I’m going to cover today and its been coming up a lot over the past few months is the personality profiling or the psychometric profiling.
So I’ll just cover a little bit about how the fire services do it and the best way to approach the tests in a general sense. I cover this subject in much more detail in my book “Inside Personality Profiling” but I’ll just give you an idea of how the fire services do it. So what they do is they come up, or the pay a company to come up with the profile for what they see as the perfect personality profile for a firefighter.
Once they do that they then use a long-winded test to test.
They test you with a lot of different questions on yes or no, strongly agree, agree or somewhat degree or disagree, things like that.
Then they see where you fit into the profile. So they’ll have a range and you fit somewhere within that range.
So obviously the idea here is you want to fit into the range that is deemed suitable for the perfect firefighter or as close as possible to this. However what will I say about this test is you just got to be honest in most cases pretty much. The same also applies of being consistent in your answers.
If you want a bit more in depth understanding of it, go grab the book and have a look through that it’s quite good. I wish you best of luck. I’m Brent Clayton from Firerecruitmentaustralia.com. Thanks for Watching.
