Talent Q is part of Korn Ferry. But they do things a little differently. If you’re required to take a Talent Q test as part of your application to the armed forces, it’s good to know that the tests are specifically designed to adapt to your capabilities. That means that the aptitude and personality test questions will intuitively adjust until they’re at the right level for you. The Talent Q tests are as follows:
Talent Q elements
There are three tests: numerical, verbal and logical, but you may not have to complete all three (it depends on the role you’re applying for). Each test has between 12-15 questions, which vary in complexity. These tests are often used in the recruitment of managerial and high-level positions.
