Choose which test your candidates will take

First choose between buying single tests or credit packs. Then choose from three test configurations, follow the links below.

The tests range from 20 to 45 minutes. The longer the test the more relevant data and the more informed decision you will be able to make. Candidate’s time is of course always of essence. Therefore it is up to you to balance these two aspects when choosing test. One way of doing it is to offer candidates to choose from two test links, requiring only the shorter but motivating to take the longer test. As a reward the test taker will get the the full cognitive profile!

Read about the tests below and choose which test you want to send out. Once you’ve selected a test you’ll shortly receive an email with a link and important information regarding how to proceed.

Cognitive screening

This test will provide you with a good understanding of a person’s flexibility, creativity and strategic thinking. You will get indicators of an individual’s adaptability, problem solving, planning and abstract thinking. The test also indicates the inclination to follow or bend the rules as well as the level of accuracy when solving problems and adapting to changes in the environment. Finally, the candidates awareness of the own capacity in relation to others is displayed.

Main abilities

Cognitive flexibility

The ability to switch between different thoughts and possible behaviors, as well as find new solutions. Examples why this is important:

  • To be able to quickly adapt to changing circumstances
  • To be able to look at things from different perspectives
  • To be able to switch between thought processes


The ability to create new solutions, here within given frames. Examples why this is important:

  • To be able to quickly find different solutions to a problem
  • To find solutions that works
  • To relate and stick to given constraints

Strategic thinking

The ability to go beyond the concrete meaning of things and phenomena in thought and instead perceive the overarching and essential. And also, the ability to create a plan that generates the most effective solution to a problem or take on a challenge. Examples why this is important.

  • Be able to develop and organize an effective plan / way forward in a complex situation
  • Be able to take a top-down perspective

Supporting abilities

These indicators explain the quality of some of the main abilities above. In this case focus on rules and Accuracy

Rule focus

Shows how well an individual stick to the rules when performing complicated tasks under time pressure. This is important to understand if an individual is inclined to follow rules or rather think outside the box when finding solutions to a problem.


How accurate is the individual when performing complicated tasks under time pressure. The level of accuracy may be more or less important in different tasks and jobs.


Indicates the candidates awareness of the own capacity in relation to others.

Complex thinking

This test builds on Cognitive screening, please see separate specification. It also includes two additional complex and important abilities; Impulse control and Conceptualization. This means you will also get with a good understanding of a person’s “self-control” and the ability to understand what is important in a context. The test also indicates an individual’s ability to update his/her actions when given new information.

Main abilities

Impulse control

  • To be able to stop one’s own irrelevant thoughts and impulses
  • To be able to assess when impulses are correct and affirm these


he ability to identify, sort and see relevant patterns in complex amounts of information and contexts. Examples why this is important:

  • To quickly see important connections in information-dense decision material
  • To be able to opt out unimportant connections

Supporting quality indicator – Update

How fast you are updating your strategy when performing tasks while receiving new, contradictory information (conflict information). Examples why this is important:

  • To be able to adapt actions based on new information
  • Not to get stuck in old, non-relevant behavioral patterns

Full cognitive profile

This test gives a complete cognitive profile. It builds on Complex thinking, please see separate specification. It gives a full view of an individual’s cognitive capacity. It also includes the more “basic” and fast abilities attention and memory. We call this the basic cognitive engine to be alert, understand and perceive what is going on, what is important and to use information given in conversations, argumentations and problem solving.
