Prior to assuming my management role with MCT, I spent 16 hours in testing for Management potential and following are the test results.


Overall, Hanson is an above average candidate for a management position. This judgment is based on the results of ability, interest, and personality assessment.


On a general test of verbal mental ability based on analogies, Hanson scored well above average relative to a norm group of middle managers. Similarly, his performance was in the superior range on a measure of verbal reasoning, i.e., the ability to understand and draw logical conclusions from verbal material. On a measure of vocabulary, his scores were on a par with middle managers and well above average relative to the general population. Overall, Hanson appears to possess excellent reasoning ability and adequate command of the language.


In the numerical area, the results were mixed. On a measure of numerical reasoning, i.e., recognizing relationships in a number series, Hanson scored in the superior range relative to the general population and on a par with middle managers. However, on a test of computational ability, he scored lower but still within the average range for the middle managers. While it appears that he can think well numerically, he needs practice in higher mathematical operations.


Hanson also took a test of spatial relations, measuring the ability to mentally manipulate objects. He scored well above average relative to our middle management norms. On a nonverbal measure of reasoning ability, Hanson performed in the very superior range relative to middle managers. Overall, Hanson possesses the reasoning skills necessary to understand and master complex material quickly.


Personality inventory results portray Hanson as a relatively dominant individual who would be comfortable controlling and directing the actions of others, and is likely to be perceived by others as a leader. He would appear to genuinely like interaction with others and can be expected to maintain excellent working relationships with his subordinates, peers, and superiors. He will likely be viewed by others as a poised, self-assured, outgoing person who should experience few difficulties with others.  He is likely to function effectively in either a structured situation or in a position that allows the freedom and independence to make decisions independently.  However, Hanson may be inclined to "bend the rules" at times in order to meet his objectives, and but will give adequate consideration to the consequences of these actions.


Hanson's vocational interest pattern portrays him as a person with relatively strong mechanical/"hands-on" interests, as well as interests in science, technology, and business management. The profile suggests that Hanson is likely to prefer a structured management style, and can be expected to run a "tight ship". His high score on teaching suggests that he would enjoy the training, coaching, and developing of subordinates. Hanson's interests in business management are also relatively strong. His interests in routine record keeping and clerical tasks are less strong, although within the average range for men. Hanson's interest pattern corresponds to men employed in occupations such as military officers, police officers, engineers, math/science teachers, chiropractors, purchasing agents, and personnel directors.  Overall, the profile suggests a relatively good fit between a management position and Hanson's interest pattern.


Overall, Hanson is a good candidate for a management track position.  His mental capabilities are well above average for middle managers, suggesting that he could handle the responsibilities and challenges of a management position effectively. Results of personality and interest assessment indicate that he is likely to be viewed as a leader by his subordinates, would maintain good control over his area of responsibility, and would be interested in coaching and developing his subordinates.  In general, he has excellent potential for growth in a management position.
