Default Psychological evaluations in other professions

Hello:

Does anyone know of other professions that require psychological
evaluation of "attitude" to weed out overconfident candidates, etc?

Thank you.

Best Regards

Steve Sousa

Default Psychological evaluations in other professions

people who serve on submarines, those who served in the missile
bunkers during the cold war, fly in space, become psychologists
(smile), FBI agents, etc, in a formal way, and nearly every
professional job in an informal way. Think of it, if you were a hiring
authority interviewing someone and you sensed their psyc profile
would not let them fit into the organization, would you hire them?

Not piloting, based on the posts to this newsgroup. ;-)

Nor any attitude weeding in the medical profession. All seem required to
take and pass "Arrogant Confidence 101."

Certainly not any weeding out in the legal professions. Same as the medical
professionals with regard to A C 101.

Professional engineers...?

Hmmm ... I suspect that maybe "non-confident professional" might be an
oxymoron. :-)

Military officer programs, law enforcement, academia, medical...

Ah, the psychological games they played at Marine Corps OCS...

United Airlines I believe used psychological testing during their
application/interview process at Stapleton some years ago. Don't know
about the present situation.

Identity problem, Dudley?

Get the book "Mind Hunter" by John Douglas (former head of the FBI profiling
Unit) and read the chapter at the end entitled "Battling Shrinks". Good read
in any case.

You are what George Orwell called a "Non Person"!

delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to
others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of
their lives." - Tolstoy

I must be dense today. Are you joking with me or trying to nail me. I
can't figure it out. Since there are no smilies or hehe's attached to
any of this, could you possibly give me a hand here? I'm having a hard
time understanding all this.
