IIPM Delhi conducts Psychometric Test

Every individual is blessed with a unique personality. Exploring and analyzing this personality is not an easy task but the Human Factor Club of IIPM, New Delhi has made it comparatively easier based on result oriented performance. The Psychometric Test was a diligent and a meticulous approach to get an insight of one's personality. Most of the people are in a delusion that there are well abreast with themselves. But as a matter of fact not many of us make an attempt to know our areas of weakness and strengths better. This Test provided a much needed platform to become a better person in both personal and professional lives by bringing about necessary changes in oneself. The Human Factor Club came along with certain concepts that gave the test takers think in a different manner and become acquainted with themselves. Now let us start how the journey of self- introspection went on. First, an attempt was made to test an individual’s behaviour in different situations. A questionnaire containing questions regarding how one reacts to different circumstances was given. Then the test takers had to score the option which perfectly described their reaction to a given situation. On the basis of their answers, their mind sets were categorized as Open, Blind, Hidden and Unknown i.e. (180* Johari window model) where two to three different people will be giving the feedback on each individual. Thus this test makes a person more expressive sheds away the hesitation or awkwardness that one feels while interacting with others makes oneself more confident to voice their opinions. The test takers were divided into a group of three. Next, Jungle Safari, a group task based on Creativity and Innovation was given to all the groups. The task was that all the groups were apparently put on a deserted jungle. They had to find the things or equipments from all over the campus and time limit was 40 minutes. This task brought out a person's behaviour in a group of unknown people; how he/she can work in a team and what can obstruct them from performing well in a group. Then came a feedback session where in each team member had to pen down their feedback on the other two. This helped each individual analyze their behaviour and helped them know themselves from others point of view. The mindsets were again categorized as Open, Blind, Hidden and Unknown. This also gave an idea of how observant a person is and how capable he/she is to give just judgments about the persons who have acquaintance of very short time. Later on, the graphs were been plotted based on the questionnaire and at the end of the session, a detailed feedback was given by Prof Angshuman Paul and Prof Pradeep Basanagoudar to all the participants. In all, the Psychometric Test was an interesting event which brought the test takers closer to themselves. Each individual was introduced to a new himself/herself with a hope to bring in more reforms in oneself that would make him/her a better person in the long run. The Human Factor Club vows to come up with more such activities and help every individual foster new redefined quality in oneself.
