Talent Assessment


General Mental Ability

As employers seek increasingly flexible candidates who can adapt to evolving jobs requirements such as frequent changes in assignments and work teams, a test of General Mental Ability becomes an effective tool.

General intelligence, referred to as g, is the ability to learn new skills, understand instructions, and solve problems. Research has shown that as job complexity increases, g becomes more important for job performance.

PSI's General Mental Ability (GMA) battery is a quick, reliable measure of g that tells an employer how well an individual can learn and apply new material. People with high GMA scores are better problem solvers, acquire new skills and knowledge faster, and adapt more quickly to new assignments, work groups, or procedures.
