The word “prediction” is a bit misleading when we are looking at observations & recommendations made by a psychometric test. As your doubt indicates, by relying on any prediction, we tend to lose sight of the underlying factors that will lead to a particular outcome. This tendency to become complacent is dangerous.

For any Confusion Regarding Career Paths – Take here: Psychometric Career Tests including Ideal Career Test


Career guides and professionals use psychometric tests as an input to get a clearer, unbiased understanding of a student’s interest & aptitude and a work profile suiting it. They never use it as the only input and suggest that a person can relax if the test confirms her/his fit with current work profile. I personally suggest my candidates intensify their hard work in a particular direction with a ruthless focus on the key parameters that define their personal meaning of success and use a psychometric test as a confirmation of their conviction. You must develop the habit of setting short and long term academic as well as career goals for yourself, re-setting them and learning from your success as well as failures. Unfortunately, we cannot delegate our career decisions to psychometric tests! In the 21st-century knowledge economy, that ownership will always be with us as an individual.
