Testing and assessment of individual abilities is one of the primary functions of Psychologists. Faculty of Behavioral Sciences proposed to provide a quick psychological assessment service during Synergy – 2018, for the visiting persons. To attract the attention of the visitors and to satisfy the need for ‘knowing thyself’, 18 stalls were laid to make the assessment in different areas such as personality assessment, cognitive assessment, career guidance and mental health assessment. Through the project, the students of behavioral sciences were interacted with a large number of visitors providing them opportunities to acquire skills of quick assessment besides knowing to handle queries.
The project was also aimed at popularizing the quick assessment procedure of psychology so as to dispel the myth of psychological testing and make them believe how simple and the objective is the procedure. The students have been able to address the need for psychological counselling and mental health counselling to a large number of visitors who registered at different stalls. All three days the stalls were thronged by self-seekers about their traits and abilities.
