Cubiks Personality Questionnaire Tips

  • In a personality test, there is no right or wrong answer. Some answers correspond to the job you are applying for, others less or not at all. Do not try to guess which answer is more appropriate for a given job, but rather follow your usual behavior. Doing it will only harm you because, even if you get the job, your abilities or your behavior will not match with the requirements. On the other hand, it is important for you to know the expectations of the company for which you are applying. Before the test, take a look at the company's website, it will often describe what skills, behaviors and competencies are valuable for them. By doing this, you will learn more about the company and its values, which will allow you to evaluate better the expected responses during the personality test.
  • Take your time to answer the questions, these tests are not limited in time, so you have plenty of time to think carefully about your answer.
  • Do the test in a quiet environment that will allow you to focus and answer questions in complete serenity.
