Golden Tips for Word Association Test

WAT stands for word association test and it’s the 2nd Psychological test. This test contains 60 different words. Each word is shown through slides for 15 seconds which focuses mainly on candidate’s personality and practice. Candidates are supposed to make out positive sentences on each word shown in the slide. Candidate’s performance depends mainly on “personality” and practice. The time limit for this test is short so a candidate has a very little time to think which drives out the personality of a candidate in the test.
