Psychological Testing

A psychological test is an instrument used to measure a specific psychological aspect or characteristic of a client. This characteristic could be a dimension of personality, IQ, aptitude, behaviour, or any other dimension of mental function. These tests are designed, performed and scored in a standardized way, that is, they must be able to measure the same aspect in different people when performed by different testers, and have a high, demonstrable validity.

The results of psychological testing can be useful in several ways. In the clinical area, it allows therapists and psychiatrists to collect clinical patient information quickly and reliably, helping to determine the presence or absence of disorders of mental health, and their impact on the patients` lives.

In the field of education, psychological tests help us to understand how the learning processes work for individual students. Thus, we can find the areas of both strength and of weakness in which students need support. Vocational guidance tests are also used to help students choose their specialized education areas.

Similarly, in the science organisational psychology, psychological testing can be used to detect strengths and weaknesses for employees, facilitating selection and support of staff in the arena of employment.

Types of Psychological Testing

Within the general classification of Psychological Testing we can find two large groups: The Psychometric tests and the Projective tests.

The Psychometric tests are those that to measure certain qualities or psychological dimensions, assign a numeric value to it. For example, they can measure the level of intelligence, memory, attention, satisfaction, negative thinking, and social functioning, among other dimensions. Due to their numerical nature and their levels of validity, they are commonly used for clinical diagnosis and the evaluation of different disorders. They are also very important tools for research in the area of ​​Mental Health.

Within the Psychometric tests we can find tests for Intellectual Coefficient, Attitudes test, Personality tests, among others.

The Projective tests are derived from the idea that similar personalities share certain psychological characteristics that can be reflected in communication styles, perceptions, expressions, etc. This type of test compares the results of the patient within different groups and manages to determine if the characteristics for certain diagnoses are met. Although their validity levels are not as high as the Psychometric tests, they are usually a valuable source of information for Mental Health professionals.

Among these tests we can find tests based on perception such as the Rorschach test, expression techniques such as the Drawing of the Human Figure, and association techniques such as Incomplete Phrases, among many others.
