What is a Psychological test?
Psychological tests (known as ´personality inventories´) are questionnaires designed to identify whether the person being assessed has thoughts and behaviours that indicate they have a personality disorder or clinical illness.
The statements included in the questionnaires cover a wide range of topics, including attitudes on religion, sexual practices, perceptions of health, political ideas, information on family, education and occupation. The questionnaire identifies symptoms that are exhibited by people suffering from certain forms of mental disorder.
These tools are commonly used by Psychologists or psychiatrists to help carry out psychological evaluations.
