The CBSE has ordered all school employees to undergo Psychometric tests henceforth. The news was reported by the Times of India (TOI) dated 14 September, 2017 and comes in the wake of a recent unfortunate incident.
However, Psychometric tests are an incomplete solution, points out Brain Wonders and suggest that the Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT) is a far more efficient and holistic solution along with the Psychometric tests.
Evaluating a candidate is perhaps one of the most difficult tasks for the School. Schools in particular have to pay greater attention to this process, as the staff they choose must be perfect in shaping, nurturing and protecting children, who are left in their care by trusting parents. The slightest error in recognizing a candidate can lead to grave results, as has been evidenced on many occasions. This is especially true, if a staff member has inherent traits that oppose their role as teacher or even as a part of the school support system.
Over the years, numerous methods have been devised, besides the traditional physical interview to gauge personalities and judge whether an applicant suits the job. Unfortunately, none of these reveal inborn proclivities or personality quirks that can remain hidden and emerge later on, often in detrimental ways. The wrong candidate can cause schools immense loss, in terms of danger, as well as money and time invested in them.
The CBSE has now recommended Psychometric tests for all school employees, but these are self-defeating. Firstly, psychometric tests are exhaustive and contain almost 300+ questions. Any person with slightest intelligence is smart enough to understand the motive behind the tests and dubious individuals can easily fudge answers to portray a different personality. Additionally, psychometric tests are of little use while evaluating lower strata of employees, like house-keeping, drivers, cooks, etc. due to language and educational challenges. This makes psychometric tests incomplete and invalid for all classes of employees.
Considering the scenario, Brain Wonders proposes the DMIT in place of psychometric tests. The DMIT is highly comprehensive, based on a scientific platform and correctly reveals hidden inborn personality traits. This test is highly scientific and derived from an individual’s fingerprints, which are unique and also, can be conducted on any individual within minutes.
Fingerprints are formed at the embryo stage and research has shown that these reveal latent characteristics of the individual. Brain Wonders DMIT offers a 24-page report that identifies several parameters, such as innate intelligences, behavioural patterns and tendencies. This makes DMIT an invaluable tool for correctly analysing and identifying a candidate’s true personality. A person may easily deceive an interviewer, but it is impossible for fingerprints to lie.
Brain Wonders is the only organization in India, with the US patented DMIT and has been conducting Biometric and Psychometric tests since its inception in 2011. The company has already assisted numerous schools and companies with the DMIT, as well as its integrated consulting and coaching facilities.
“The holistic report of an individual provided by Brainwonders through DMIT assessment is the best assessment which take care of an individual’s innate intelligence, behaviour patterns and tendencies. I would highly recommend all schools to use Brainwonders DMIT assessment tool to evaluate their staff members.”

“The Brainwonders DMIT assessment report has made a very positive impact, I would highly recommend it to everyone to experience Brainwonders DMIT assessment. I have already conducted Brainwonders DMIT assessment for all my staff members, the outcome of the report has helped me understand the personality of each and every staff members. I have Included it in my School Academic Curriculum as well to guide the students to excel in their career.”
