PCP is U-Sky's proprietary psychometric assessment that is taken in combination with an individual's personality, aptitude and interest. This test report suggests careers and courses which are much more apt and accurate for the student, matching not just his / her personality, but also his / her aptitude and interests. Knowing your personality type, as measured through the U-Sky's PCP instrument, can help you with career planning at every stage: from your choice of subjects and majors in school to choosing your first career, to advancing in your organization or changing careers later in life.
Choosing your career or field of study is one of the most important decisions a student or his/her parents help make. The most successful people are those that have an inherent or natural strength and enjoy what they do. We at U-Sky diligently map every student's personality, aptitude and interests and recommend the best fit or most optimal choices of subjects and careers.
U-Sky PCP psychometric assessment is a combination of the following 3 instruments:
This test maps the "in-born" aptitudes of the student. These aptitudes naturally help the student to learn or do certain tasks or activities.
For example: Certain students, right from their childhood would love to break open their toys and then reassemble back. This is indicative of a certain aptitude that is in-born.8 sections - approximately 45 minutes
This test maps the course / career interest of the student. The student explores around close to 200 different courses / careers, looks at all aspects and finally picks the one that he / she is most interested in.
Discipline, Major, Specialization or Field of interest - MPC (Math, Physics and Chemistry) or BiPC (Biology, Physics and Chemistry), etc. post 10th grade level.
Career choices - Engineer, Doctor, Lawyer, Business, etc.45 questions - approximately 5 minutes
his test maps the personality of the student, that is, it measures the most natural behaviour that the student displays in different situations. It maps 28 personality traits. With career decidedness
For example: There are certain students who are naturally extrovert, while others are shyer. There are a few, who are quick decision makers, while others who can analyze well.10 questions - approximately 5 minutes
Students can find the right job which they love. The main advantage of this test is that evaluation can be done about the personality and abilities about a particular job and make out if the job is a perfect fit.
Every individual is unique and is born with certain inherent potential or talent. This talent helps them to learn things easily and quickly. Psychologists call this potential as Aptitude.
Aptitude gets reflected in an individual, essentially as a result of early exposure and behavioural scientists believe that it gets concretized by the age of 14 and remain stable after that. To be successful in a certain career, one needs to have certain combination of aptitudes. For example, to design something, we need to think visually. If one doesn't have the essential aptitude, one can still try to design; however the results will be delayed and a lot of effort will be needed. On the other hand if one has the required Aptitudes, one can accomplish the tasks easily and quickly and thus success will come early. Thus, it is important to understand ones' own Aptitudes and choose the career accordingly.
There are Eight different types of Aptitudes that psychologists have identified. We at U-Sky PCP assess all these Eight types of Aptitudes. In this report you will find your aptitude scores, which are not absolute, but are relative scores. This means that your scores have been statistically compared with the students of your age group and then used for further analysis. You will find them depicted as Excellent, High, Moderate or Low.
Personality is essentially the behaviour which gets naturally reflected in an individual without much effort and under normal circumstances. Researchers believe that behaviour is determined by both genetics and situations and unlike Aptitude, improvement in Personality traits is possible. Any career that one chooses should be complimentary to one's Personality. For Example, if you are an introvert, you would be at your best if you choose a career which requires you to work alone. Thus it is equally important to know about your personality and choose a field of study career accordingly.
U-Sky PCP has assessed you on 6 different behavioural traits of Personality. These traits combine to form different Personality Types. In this report you will find your scores for all the traits and your predominant personality types. Again, you will find them depicted as Excellent, High, Moderate or Low.
We asked you to list your career interests during the assessment. Most of us develop interests, as we get in contact with different people. However, it is also true that interests change with knowledge and experience and are quite floating in nature. We can have three possible scenarios for Interests, here they are:
Scenario - 1: This is a situation when your Aptitude and Personality Profile match very well with the requirements of your Career Interest. In this situation, you would experience natural joy and happiness, while working in the field of your Career Interest
Scenario - 2: This is a situation when your Aptitude is matching very well with the requirements of your Career Interest but your Personality is not matching very well. The good news is that Personality can always be improved upon; hence you can pursue this career Interest but you'll have to work on certain aspects of your Personality
Scenario - 3: This is a situation when your Aptitude and Personality do not match very well with the requirements of your Career Interest. Pursuing such a career can be difficult for the individual. Of course, with effort and determination one can pursue anything in life; however it is best to pursue those careers where the Aptitude and Personality fitment is there
WHAT IS YOUR OPTIMAL SOLUTION
The secret in choosing the RIGHT career path is to correctly assess ones' Aptitudes and Personality and then pick the careers accordingly. You now know that how your Aptitude and Personality Profile is matching with the three career Interests that you marked at the time of Assessment.
Psychologists believe that if we choose a career which does not utilize our inherent Talents, then we are bound to get frustrated. Equally frustrating is the situation when we land up in a career where we do not have the required Aptitude and Personality, thus everyday is a struggle.
It is perfectly OK if some or all of your career Interests are not matching very well with your Aptitude and Personality. As we mentioned earlier, Interests are quite floating in nature and can be inculcated in those careers which are fitting very well with your Aptitude and Personality.
So, read on to know what we recommend as your RIGHT career choices.
