Psychometric testing, performed by trained psychologists, is the best predictor of job success of any recruitment or selection tool out there. It is a science, and it teaches you that:
😄 Extraversion is not the same as social skill. Also, it is not going to predict success in a job.
👯 Personality tests, such as the Myers-Briggs personality test, are a typology. They might help you understand people on your team, but the results are not correlated with job success.
⁉️ Interviews are, to some degree, a measure of intelligence. Intelligence IS correlated with job success.

It also dispelled many myths of the recruitment process and other things you just weren’t sure about.
