With over 25 years of rich experience in research, academics, and hospitals, Dr. Mishra, who holds a doctorate in psychology from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), shared insightful knowledge on psychometric testing.

In her lecture, Dr. Mishra explained the importance of psychometric testing. She said that psychometric tests can be used to assess a person’s cognitive abilities, personality traits, and interests. This information can be used to help people make career decisions, improve their performance at work, and develop their personal growth.

Dr. Mishra also explained the different types of psychometric tests. Some of the most common types of psychometric tests include:

  • Intelligence tests: These tests measure a person’s general cognitive ability.
  • Ability tests: These tests measure a person’s specific skills or abilities, such as verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, or spatial reasoning.
  • Personality tests: These tests measure a person’s personality traits, such as extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness to experience, and neuroticism.
  • Interest tests: These tests measure a person’s interests, such as their career goals, hobbies, and activities.

Dr. Mishra also discussed the ABC model of attitude. The ABC model(Affective, Behavioural and Cognitive) states that our attitudes are influenced by our thoughts (A), our behaviours (B), and our feelings (C). For example, if we think that we are not good enough for a job (A), we may behave in a way that is self-defeating (B), and we may feel anxious or depressed (C).

Dr. Mishra also discussed the cognitive triangle. The cognitive triangle states that our thoughts, behaviours, and feelings are all interconnected. For example, if we have a negative thought about ourselves (A), we may be more likely to behave in a way that is self-destructive (B), and we may feel bad about ourselves (C).

Finally, Dr. Mishra conducted two activities that gave insights into problem solving and critical thinking. These activities helped the students to understand how to approach and solve problems in a systematic and logical way.

The students found the lecture to be informative and helpful. They learned about the different types of psychometric tests and how they can be used to measure psychological constructs.
