Are you up to the demands of the role? FinxS Reasoning Analysis is an assessment designed to measure your reasoning skills. Reasoning skills play an important role in tasks requiring different elements of intelligence, like critical thinking, problem solving and tasks requiring creativity. They require active and thorough processing of information by collecting, analysing, conceptualising, combining and assessing it. Many jobs performed in organisations require these skills. Although the skills can be developed, at least to some extent, a person with developed reasoning skills is likely to perform more effectively in tasks requiring reasoning skills.
It is made up of 5 tests, each measuring a different element of your reasoning skills:
1. Abstract Logical Reasoning
It measures your ability to understand the interrelationship between different concepts and to combine them on a higher level under one concept. It reflects your ability to understand how different phenomenon relate to each other. It also measures how well you understand “the big picture” and its components. It correlates with general learning skills and can be developed over time. Typically, it correlates with tasks including planning, organising, delegating, creating systems and data analysis High scores indicate the ability to see and identify trends. Low scores may indicate difficulties with seeing the trends; distinguishing between important and nonimportant facts and attention being paid to unnecessary details.
2. Understanding Logical Process
It measures your ability to understand cause and effect relationships. It reflects your ability to understand how the information available influences the future and what that consequence of the present information could be. It measures how systematic your thinking process is and it correlates with general learning skills. It is not that easy developed over time. Typically, it correlates with tasks, like problem solving, business negotiations, predicting/influencing behaviour and researching. High scores indicate ability to solve new and complex problems plus identify underlying reasons for conflicts and misunderstandings. Low scores may indicate you are reliant on old solutions for solving new problems.
3. Spacial Reasoning
It measures your ability to comprehend visual entities and the components they consist of. It reflects your ability to manage the information collected by visual perception. Visual Reasoning skills are often connected to the skills required by architects and visual designers. Typically, it correlates with roles including Architect, Designer, Chemist, Artist and Engineering. High scores indicate an ability to understand how individual processes relate to each other and participate in multiple simultaneous processes. Low scores may indicate an inability to visualise with the mind’s eye and limited imagination.
4. Understanding Social Context
It measures your general sensitiveness to observe social phenomenon. It reflects your ability to sense conflict situations and to reason how the interpersonal relationships influence a situation. It correlates with skills needed in jobs that require social understanding and ability to respond according to how the social interactions develop. Typically, it correlates with tasks like managing human relations, selling, motivating and counselling. High scores indicate an ability to read between the lines and anticipate people’s reactions. Low scores may result in more direct behaviour in conflict situations and defensive behaviour.
5. Numerical Reasoning
It measures your ability to perceive the relationships between numerical information. It correlates with skills needed in jobs that require an ability to follow a logic presented by numbers. Typically, it correlates with tasks like analysis of data, processing of statistics and accounting. High scores indicate an ability to analyse statistical trends and estimate future trends. Low scores may indicate an inability to concentrate on details.
FinxS Reasoning Analysis is most often used in situations that require measuring a person’s future development potential and can be utilised for recruitment, internal transfers and development screening.
