Choosing a career path is one of the biggest decisions of someone’s life. One must put a lot of thought and deliberation into it since it is a life-changing decision. Your life’s satisfaction and happiness could depend on it. If you are in a career which is suited to your skills and personality, you will have a good time at work. You will enjoy working. Even those extra hours won’t matter because you will be working on something you are passionate about. Your career will last a lifetime and early retirement won’t make sense. On the contrary, if you choose a wrong career path, which is not suited to your interest, it might feel like a burden. You won’t be able to perform to your fullest potential and there might be a lingering sense of job dissatisfaction.
Unfortunately, not a lot of people in India are satisfied with their job. This signifies a major gap in our understanding of skills, aptitude, intelligence and interest of the workforce.
One way to determine these factors could be asking the person directly, observe them in action or even gather observations about the person from other people. However, these methods can be affected by personal bias and perspective. A solid way to gauge the cognitive and behavioural abilities, skills, personality, and interest of the individual is by psychometric tests. These tests will help to make more objective and impartial judgments.

It helps in their strategic initiatives of selection, talent management, assessing workforce capability, understanding the organizational culture, employee engagement and succession planning.
