  • Psych tests...written and oral

    I'm pretty far in the application process for the local PD and the Sergeant says that all I have left is to pass my psych test. I'm a little confused as to what this test measures exactly. Are they just trying to make sure you're not crazy? Checking temperment? What are the questions like? If anyone who's taken this test could share their experience, it might help me get a better idea of what it's all about.
    Never second guess your own common sense.

    The tests vary from one department to another but for the most part they ask the same questions. Anywhere from 300 to 1500 questions, google MMPI2 and that will help you out alot.

    They are not trying to see if you are crazy, just if you fit into what they are looking for. I failed my 1st psych test for one department and passed for 2 others and i start the academy on Monday. Hope this helps you out some.

      MMPI requires a full night sleep. Basically it is the same 10 questions written 10 different ways. Do you love your mother, do you want to be a flourist, etc.
      "Respect for religion must be reestablished. Public debt should be reduced. The arrogance of public officials must be curtailed. Assistance to foreign lands must be stopped or we shall bankrupt ourselves. The people should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence." - Cicero, 60 B.C.

        think of it more as a "personality assessment" as opposed to a psych test to see if you're crazy.

          So do I want to be a flourist?

          No, I want to be a cop...

          What are you supoes to put for thoes questions? Haha, I never got that. I failed one and passed another one of these things. I still don't get what I'm supoes to put down.
