    Default puzzled on the written


    I recently took a written test for a dept. and was puzzled on how to answer a certain questions.

    The middle of the test had a section where you had to pick "what would you prefer to do..." and they gave options like "operate big machinery" or "open your own business and invest money."

    The test directions said not to try and outsmart the test by guessing what you think the answers are, but to pick the choice that you honestly would rather do.

    How do they grade the right answers in this section?

    Do you just pick the firefighter related questions as your answers?

    Are the firefighter related answers automatically the right anwers?

    thanks to all that post ahead of time

    Default Psyched out?

    These are psych based questions that have crept into written test to eliminate candidates early on in the process. Check out www.fireprep.com for more.
