Morrisby Profile

The Morrisby Profile is a series of individual 'tests', sometimes called a test battery, which help to assess a person’s capacity and suitability for certain careers based on aptitude, ability and personality. Although the tests are administered in a formal manner, they are not examinations. The results from these tests provide a valuable insight into your ability patterns and the sort of work environment which would suit you best.

The Morrisby Profile finds out what your strengths are and what special aptitudes you may have.

According to the Morrisby Organisation, when the Morrisby Profile "is used in conjunction with a detailed job analysis, it provides a powerful method of matching applicants to jobs". For example, good verbal ability is associated with many administrative, managerial and people-oriented occupations. In contrast, strong perceptual ability indicates a potential in scientific and engineering areas. The Morrisby Profile can also help to pinpoint your preferred method of studying and learning, for example, indicating whether you would prefer a course with lots of practical activities, or a more academic mode of teaching.

It takes three and a half hours, including an 8-minute break. Although it sounds hard work, people generally find it interesting and fun.
