Other Aptitude Tests

We have several other assessments to help you see how you would score in certain fields you may be interested in.  Similar assessments are given as pre-employment assessments to possible hires.  We have the following other assessments: Childcare, Nursing, Care provider, Security Guard, and Hairstylist. As an example, how would you score if you wanted to run your own business? The following summary is based on the Entrepreneur assessment.

Finding a job we love is essential for personal and professional satisfaction. It makes the time pass quickly and leaves us content rather than drained at the end of the day. There are some people who have more trouble than others finding the perfect job. Maybe they have a hard time taking directions or hate working in an industry they aren’t passionate about. Perhaps they have a lot of great ideas that they never get to implement because of all the bureaucratic red tape in their workplace. Sometimes, they just feel driven to achieve, heading towards some finish line that most people can’t see.

 

These people work best when they set out on their own, as entrepreneurs. They see opportunities and aren’t afraid to go after them, starting their own businesses. This is not at all an uncommon situation; the majority of businesses in North America are owned by entrepreneurs. The number of self-employed people has increased in recent years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Moreover, the number of entrepreneurs is going to continue to increase in the coming years; a recent survey showed that 65% of 14 to 19-year-olds are interested in starting their own businesses. In 2003, 10.3 million workers were self-employed, nearly 40% of whom are women. In fact, the number of self-employed women has doubled in the past 20 years.

 

Entrepreneurs work in nearly all occupations and industries. They do what they’re best at and what they’re passionate about. Being self-employed involves hard work and long hours. The first two years can be the most difficult when the business is being established and doesn’t have a stable customer base yet. Most businesses - as high as 70% of them - will fail, but people with a true entrepreneurial spirit bounce back quickly and are likely to launch into another venture soon afterward, always building on the knowledge and experience they've gained.

This test will help you identify whether you have the characteristics that typically demonstrate entrepreneurial potential, including the drive to succeed, a supportive social network, a positive outlook on success, and openness to new ideas.
