Self Description Test Of SSB Interview



Self description test in SSB is very important and critical test, it tells about one's personality more clearly. Self description is a tool for psychologist to know about the candidates behavior and attitude and his/her relationship and behavior in the society. Time allotted for self description is 15 mins in which you have to answer 5 important questions. Time is important so manage your time for each question and avoid long paragraphs.




What are the questions ?
A.WHAT DOES YOUR PARENTS THINK ABOUT YOU ?
B.WHAT DOES YOUR TEACHER/EMPLOYER THINK ABOUT YOU ?
C.WHAT DOES YOUR FRIENDS/COLLEAGUES THINK ABOUT YOU ?
D.WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF ?
E.QUALITIES YOU WOULD LIKE TO IMPROVE IN THE FUTURE ?

Tips:
1 Divide the time to answer each and every questions correctly.
2 Do not neglect your strong and weak points.
3 Do not try to hide your weaknesses, if you do so you will never come out of it.
4 Cleverly mention you strong points which shows some OLQs.
5 Avoid writing too much " strong words " , be in a normal mode.
6 First analyse what your parents, friends and teachers thinks about you and write it in well mannered
7 Do not contradict with the matter written in your PIQ form, be careful.
8 All strong and weak points of yours must reflects in others tests.


For example if you say in self description that, you want to learn swimming and on the other hand you write a story in TAT in which your hero is swimming across a river, you will be contradicting your own statment then and it will leads to bad personality .

    1. thats good ....but not that much of good that u never give chances to others means you are not promoting ur colleague ideas, army dont prefer the type of people those who dont want to improve their group's ideas

      Delete
  15. please sir ,will you give details what group testing officer is looking in you

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Raj Dominating means not letting others to put their points, there is difference in talking more and dominating.

    Also in a discussion if you will not listen to the others point then what will you discuss ? Its a Group discussion not an individual speech.

    If you think you dominate others and don't listen to them then you will never make it, this is the worst quality and one should not have it.

    to be emotional ..they count it as a strong or a weak point???

    ReplyDelete
  18. @hitaiksha

    To show your emotions in interview is not a good point, try to control them, IO has nothing to do with sadness and happiness you had in your life :), just be strong and concentrate on giving a best shot.

  30. MY friends TAT plays a most valuable role in your pshycology.the WAT and SRT confirms it through action and experience.SD give a 80% idea of urself to phscologist while 20% u can add ur strong and weak points which he has'nt found out through TAT,WAT,SRT..my sincere advice to all ssb aspirants that you know which r your strong and weak points ."getting up late in morning,communication problem at your adult age r all nonsense weak points".this only gives idea to pshcologist that you are hiding something.THE only way to do well in TAT is spontaneous,obesvatory,imaginative and a sensible real life story.this you can acheive by constant practice of story writing.WAT should come from ur life experiences.
    My friends trust me it totally depends upon the 5 day performance you give there..if you are right on track ,u will reach IMA...else keep on trying till u get another right train.
