  • Passed everthing in the process, except Psch...

    Well I received my letter yesterday stating that i passed everything except the psychological portion of the exam. Im still replaying the entire interview in my head and cant seem to find a reason why i failed out on it. The crappy part is that in the letter is says that i am not able to test again until April 26, 2006! Im going to contact my detective and see what i could possibly work out or even appeal....but, i think its a lost cause and there is nothing i can do about it.

    Don't sweat it, same thing happened to me recently. Granted, that ended my testing process, so never made it to the poly or medical, but passed everything up to that point. Kind of blew me away that I failed my pysch. I feel I'm a very level headed person, and the pysch consisted of them asking me about everything I did in my past. So not really sure how they base who I am now on what I did when I was a teenager, which wasn't a lot. But oh well, passed my pysch with another agency, so atleast I know I'm not crazy, hahaha.

      I know its because im not nuts!!! I think it might be a maturity thing. It is what it is though. It does suck, but this gives me 9 months to prepare and get ahead of everything else that i can. I know i can get to this point again. The tests and everything else isnt the hard part, it the part where they decide go or no go that sucks. I will get on, its just going to take a little longer than expected.

        Call the place that you did your psych and ask for a copy of the report. That should give you some insight.

        I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

          Psych questions

          Can anyone remember what was asked on their psych exam? Is it just a 500 question test or is there more? I'm curious.

          I seem to remember that for NYPD (20+ yrs ago) I sat down and spoke to a psychiatrist but beyond that I don't recall.

          Thanks.

            When I took the psych at another dept they had me take the 500? MMPI and then did an interview with me. Same thing happened at my current job. Best thing I can say is to get a lot of sleep before taking an MMPI as it can really have an effect on the results.

                Well, it certainly can't hurt to ask.
