Aptitude tests assess a person's abilities or intelligence, often as part of an IQ test, whilst personality questionnaires help to reveal an individual's characteristics or personality traits. Both are of equal value to employers as they can indicate a candidate's suitability to a particular position. IQ and Personality Tests contains hundreds of practice questions from both these vital areas of assessment. The personality questions look at attitudes and values, often in an entertaining way, whilst the aptitude questions are organised into two IQ tests which assess verbal, numerical, logical and spatial reasoning skills. They are typical of the type and style of question candidates are likely to encounter in actual IQ tests. Answers and a simple analysis of scores are also given, so that readers can assess their performance. Whilst providing entertainment, the questions in IQ and Personality Tests are also a great source of practice material for those faced with the real tests.

The text continues to offer a superb thematic organization together with practical applications and examples that help students see beyond research to big-picture concepts. Often described as a challenging book that is easy to learn from, the book surveys psychology's broad range of content with three aims: to illuminate the process of research and its relationship to application, to show both the unity and diversity of psychology's subject matter, and to help students master the basic concepts and principles of psychology with as little struggle as possible. Weiten's themes provide unifying threads across chapters that help students to see the connections among different research areas in psychology. A dynamic, teaching-oriented illustration program -- including new color-coded Concept Charts -- further enhances these themes.
