When under pressure we have a tendency to turn to characteristics and behaviours that we consider to be strengths, however this could lead to difficulty in certain situations. This questionnaire provides insight to help you avoid these potential "trip hazards".

This test allows you understand your own reactions to pressure and identify some traits that might be having an impact on your career.

Advice from our Psychologists

Everyone has weaknesses, some of which are a result of overdone strengths, and manage these by actively monitoring and controlling their behavior. At times of stress or pressure, though, the capacity to maintain this control can be impacted and the facade slips, revealing the underlying reactions. This test helps to determine where these weaknesses lie, and the potential impact they may have.
