What is a Personality Test?

A personality test is a method to understand how people behave. It looks at the usual ways people act in different situations. Organizations use these tests to recruit, select and develop their employees. Personality is what makes a person unique. It includes things like traits, interests, what drives them, what they value, how they see themselves, their skills, and how they feel and react to things.
