Psychometrists administer psychological tests which aim to 'measure' functions such as cognition (often referred to as IQ or intelligence tests), interest (for example career assessments) and personality. The results are usually interpreted by a psychologist or psychiatrist to better understand the clients attitudes, abilities, medical condition or suitability in the workplace. Psychometrists hold an honours degree in research psychology and are registered with the HPCSA.
