Tweak Your Self Description (SD) ~ SSB Aspirants

Self Description
psychologists test
Preparing with common topics like IQ preparation,PPDT, TAT, WAT, SRT, Interview prepatation, it is also advised that before going for SSB interview, a candidate should at least prepare things which he/she will definitely encounter during testing like the Blank story, Self Description, Questions related to our personal lives etc.
Among afore mentioned things Self description is the one about which even the psychologists suggest that it should be pre-prepared and well practiced. Self description requires us to record our observations about ourselves through the eyes of Parents, Superiors or Teachers, Colleagues or friends and finally ourselves.
A simple exercise but its importance lies in the fact that a good SD can earn you the favor of the psychologist and a not so good one can have an opposite effect.

How to make it effective? How to concur your SD with the findings of the psychologist obtained by reading your TAT, WAT and SRT responses?

There is no exact theory to this but just some simple common sense; here is what I did in my last SSB.
During TAT the 6th picture was a girl (14-16 yrs according to my perception) was sitting on a bench and a young man was standing and talking to her.
MY RESPONSE: Brother motivating sister as she was not able to get admission in the college of her choice.
7th picture: 6-7 boys lying down on the ground and one man gesturing and talking to them
MY RESPONSE: Sports teacher motivating students to train harder.
8th picture: a boy (10-12 years) sulking while sitting on a chair and a young man putting an arm around his shoulder and talking.
MY RESPONSE: Elder brother motivating younger brother (again! ).
Seeing my responses even a blind person would have come to the conclusion that I had fallen into a loop and was short of ideas. I too was alarmed and this thing was constantly running at the back of my mind during the remaining part of testing. Just before my Self Description,I did a bit of reverse engineering and added a sentence in each of my paragraphs of Self Description.

Superior’s opinion: They appreciate my role in 'motivating' the new GET’s that join our company.
Colleague’s opinion: They find me 'motivated' and also rub off the effect on others.
Own opinion: I am able to 'motivate' others and bring out the best in them.
Though I am not an expert but as much as I can tell this provided a counter balance to my screw up in TAT. If a candidate is able to gauge the quality of his responses and can counter balance it in Self Description, half the battle is won.

Now comes the another very important test in SSB i.e 'INTERVIEW' and again Self Description (SD) comes into play if you know the importance of it.Before you are called in for Interview,you are made to wait outside the Interview room.At that time,the IO (Interviewing Officer) is going through your Self Description,PIQ and your other educational certificates and prepares questions for you.He expects you to be the same one as portrayed by you in your PIQ and SD.
So,if you know what you have written in SD and had prepared well,then you can do well in Interview also.

You can repeat the lines or exemplify the points you wrote in Self Description.Try to speak the things you wrote in Self Description so that the person portrayed in Self Description and Person being Interviewed comes out to be the same.

This is a highly recommended tips for everybody to prepare your Self description very well.

Psychology: Self Description Test for Practice-I

By Deepak Tomar →


Guys Today I am posting a very useful article on How to write self description, what instructions should be kept in mind before writing SD in Psychology Test of SSB Interview. Your Should try to write best self description which suits your personality. Then Next post will include Example of self Description Test –SD in SSB, I will put 2 or 3 sample Self Description-SD.

The self-description includes writing paragraph on the following aspects:

  1. Parents Opinion
  2. Teachers Opinion / Employers opinion
  3. Friends Opinion
  4. Opinion about yourself
  5. Qualities you would like to improve.

                The self-description test is a real test of one’s personality profile. The student are explained the modalities of test allotted fifteen minutes to express their thoughts about their parents, teachers, friends, opinion by the employee if working, self-analysis and shortcomings. The test allows the assessor to have a generic and detailed view of each and every student. Students, who give automated responses, loose to great degree in the test. The self-Description is required to cover the personality profile inclusive of all three tests as conducted and commented bye the students. Invariably, it is seen that the self analysis is viewed in totality and not in isolation.

                Fabricated profile emerging out of TAT and WAT are not confirming to the self-appraisal, lets down a student in clearing the test. The mechanism of testing is required to be learned systematically, so that profile which is emerging out of the first three tests is commensurate to the write up endorsed by the student as part of Self-Description Test.

                The Psychology Test should be learned and validated before proceeding for the Services selection Board. The responses given by the students should be live time experiences and practically true and correct to their projected profile.
