Founded in 1989, specialising in Business Psychology, Team Focus Limited (TFL) has one the most comprehensive range of psychometrics available on a single platform called 'Profiling for Success.' The measures are 'leading edge' but this is not simply the slickness of the online delivery. It includes NEW THINKING in psychometrics. We recognise that the brain's thinking complexity cannot be assessed by Verbal, Numerical and Abstract Tests alone. We have innovative ability measures such as the Decision Analysis Test and a measure of multi-tasking called the Memory and Attention Test. In personality we acknowledge the limitations of self-report. Our questionnaires approach 'who we are' from different angles. We explore people's sense of identity plus their aspirations and motivations. We capture not only the typical 'you' but the 'you under pressure' - how people change and stretch. We use rigorous psychometrics but it is the psychology and not the statistics that drive the process. We have trait measures, type measures, measures that deconstruct and clarify issues of resilience, motivation, learning style, emotional intelligence, team roles and more. We have a career guidance package and also offer one of the widest ranges of training programmes in major personality and soft skills questionnaires.Read more

It identifies the ability to solve problems from first principles and is a useful alternative to tests of general intelligence. Available to Registered Test Users.
