Tips for Situation Reaction Test

  • Be brief in your solutions
  • Also, there might be some questions repeated to check consistency, just maintain that and don’t show different solutions at such places which give the essence of fakeness.
  • Make a note of this that you cannot leave any situation unhandled but you have to provide a solution that is feasible by a human being not by a super hero.
  • Your solutions and qualities might be discussed at the conference by all the officers when they get together. So they should get the same person as it is when they go through the personality assessment.
  • Also, it is suggested that you can refer books but should get your solutions assessed that whether they match your personality or not. Books only provide sample solutions.
  • Also answer for one individual might not be correct for one individual because you should remember that through these answers you have to prove your qualities what you actually have in you. So answers could be same but you should judge that you possess it or not.
  • Be realistic and practical with your answers
  • Be truthful and don’t try to fake as you are being tested at various places for the same quality or say that same quality should come out of your acts so never try to conceal anything.
  • Try to attempt as many questions as you want and don’t try to escape situations. That simply means you are thinking too much and responding by faking results
  • Read the situation properly before answering to understand the context of the place.
  • The quality of response matters not the quality, but this does not give the freedom to think and write less. You score for more you write the answers rightly.
