Shella Consultants is one of the leading executive search firm servicing
Domestic and International companies. We have developed a range of
psychometric tests that will help you to select the best candidates for
accomplishing the job with perfection. We offer a range of questionnaires
covering personality, interest and value assessments. Aptitude and ability
tests are used in occupational selection and assessment and vocational
guidance of the candidates. A psychometric test should not be used on its
own to make a decision or prediction about a person's job performance. There
are other factors that are equally important for nearly all jobs.
Psychometric test is not only for candidates seeking job but also for
organizations selecting suitable candidates. The tests will often provide
objective data about qualities that are difficult to assess during
interview. They will also enable particular views achieved through personal
interview to be confirmed or challenged.

and give you valuable information on which you can decide on the suitable
candidates that you require for different job openings. Some of the types of

MTQ48 is a reliable and quick assessment method of an
individual's ability to withstand pressure in a range of workplace
environments. It particularly measures mental toughness in terms of 4 core
components - control, challenge, commitment and confidence.
Individuals who score high on this scale realize that they are in
control of their work and of the environment in which they work. They
are capable of putting more influence on their working environment. They
get more confident about working in complex or multi-tasked situations.
This aspect describes the extent to which individuals see challenges as
opportunities. Individuals who see them as opportunities will identify
problems as ways for self-improvement.
This describes the ability of an individual to carry out tasks
successfully despite problems or obstacles that arise during the course
of achieving the goal.
Individuals who are high in confidence develop self-belief to
successfully complete tasks that may be considered too difficult by
individuals with similar abilities but with lower confidence level. Less
confident individuals are also likely to make more errors.
Once the questionnaire is completed, the software
immediately generates 4 different reports. Each of the report contain
detailed explanations and instructions for their applicants.

management, entrepreneurs & business owners and people who are placed in
