Yesterday I went through a grueling battery of psychological/personality exams as part of my pre-employment requirements. In the morning of course the exams were a bit “easy” since my mind is still fresh, but as the day progressed I was ready to puke out and all I’m seeing were patterns, images, and spatial relations. I was even trying to evoke the spirit of John Nash (remember A Beautiful Mind) as I tried to churn out the answers to the exams.
I understand this is needed by the employers to assess their future employees of their personality and psychological condition, but I just have this feeling that sometimes it doesn’t help.
I mean, I’ve worked with some pretty “crazy” people whom I know “passed” some Psycho/Personality test one way or another and sometimes you’d wonder who’d even be sane to hire such a lunatic. I know some people think of me the same way too. Hehehe.
I wonder what my psychological evaluation would be? I can hear the theme from Psycho now… 🙂
