Hello….my dearservice aspirants. I have got an important information to share with u all. In service selection board interview every individual testing got its ownimportance. But to be frank Psychology is an important in all testings.
Psychology: In psychology testing we all haveto undergo TAT, WAT, SRT,SAT, these 4 tests decides further testing procedure ofan individual. Today i would like to share the idea behind the WAT: WORD ASSOCIATION TEST
This test is very simple in comparison withany other testing in psychology. Candidly its not word that is shown to you.Its the situation to which u are exposed to and psychologist would like to knowyour responses to that word(situation) . I would example u all people in detailwith an example. Let’s consider word SEX Responses: The response that i likelyto be given is
1. Sex is the originof life
2. Every mammal havesex organs
The response should begiven in this way. But the response should be positive, Now i would like to goin detail and explain the type of words that are given in SSB for WAT. Words canbe classified into two types they are OFF TRACK and ON TRACK words. These twowords will be describe what sort of personality you have.
Importance of ON TRACKwords.
These words arebasically are used to project your personality. For example lets consider aword like PLAN Responses that arelikely to be given should be your reaction or your idea for a plan. In yourlife you all people lead a life with a plan. So they expect your response forplan in your views, The response that is expected is1. An effective planleads to success
2. A smart planninggives easy execution
OFF TRACK words
These wordsare given just confuse. And psychologist is want to know you, your reactioneven after exposure to a confusion state. For example let’s consider a wordlike BRIDGE The response should be natural for OFF TRACK words. The responseshould is given for these words are1. 1.Bridges are build across river.
