  • Proper Attire for an Aptitude/Personality Test?

    Good news, passed a 2nd set of interviews amongst some top scoring candidates.

    I was 3 before today, and received a call that I've bumped up to the 2nd spot.

    In a few days I will be taking an Aptitude/Personality test geared toward Law Enforcement and I'm wondering what is the proper attire (in all your honest opinions)


    Keep in mind I wore a business suit to the past oral interviews and the one today. Must I keep wearing this? or is it ok to be a little different.

    Thanks in advance

      Always Always Always wear a suit until told otherwise. Its better to over dress than underdress. Theres nothing wrong with wearing a suit, but there is something wrong with "mixing it up". Youre not even hired yet, so you want to make the best impressions possible. Good luck.

          Wear your Dress Blues! That is assuming your 0311 stands for the same 0311 as mine! Haha....Suit up, or at least wear a sports jacket

              took the MMPI and some other test which was like a mini written law enforcement suitability assessment. I feel it went well, however it was the first time I've taken one, so I was a little anxious as I didn't know what to expect.

              90 questions on the first part, and the MMPI was 300 questions.

                      correction, it was not the MMPI. (sorry)

                      I'm taking the MMPI in a couple days...which according to one of the Lt's, is a 600 question test.

                      I'm nervous since i've never taken one before, but I feel I should pass.

                      --------

                      I guess what I took was some more generalized personality test.


                      this department is moving along very quick with the process! I'm starting the BI, doing a psych on monday and a polygraph a little less than 2 weeks later!

                      I'm ranked 2nd. 6 Conditional offers of employment have been mailed out and there is 3 spots! this is good.

                        Some of the standouts I recall:

                        True or False

                        - Have you ever wanted to be a florist.
                        - You have strong romantic feelings toward your mother.
                        - You enjoy hurting people.

                        Variations on these and about two dozen others, repeated in variations.

                            I have to agree, a suit. You want to look your best and present a positive and confident image.

                              What's with the $%#! flower questions


                              ----

                              I have to admit, some of the questions had the most ridiculous/awkward wordings.


                              some were very abstract "I brood a great deal"
                              I said true, but only because I wasn't sure what brood meant in that sense.
                              I thought it meant something to the effect of "I look for a good deal" (like a good sale or something cheap)

                              it actually means to worry over or ponder (a great deal or a lot)...which is not how I am... oh well.
