Psychological Testing Q & A

What is psychological testing?

Psychological testing encompasses all types of tests and evaluations that show the way your mind functions. Some are mood-based, some intelligence-based, and others test for certain disabilities.

The expert team at The Green Room Psychological Services Inc. provides many types of psychological testing. They evaluate your results to come to a conclusion about your state of mind. Testing may be required for your job, school, court cases, and many other situations.

What does psychological testing determine?

The team at The Green Room Psychological Services Inc. decides which test or tests are necessary for finding the answers that you need. Psychological tests and forensic evaluations provided by the team include:

  • ADHD screening
  • Intellectual disability tests
  • Learning disability tests
  • Juvenile competency to stand trial
  • Adult competency to stand trial
  • Not guilty by reason of insanity
  • Domestic violence
  • Parental fitness
  • Fitness for military duty

The team may choose multiple assessments in order to come to a final conclusion. Through these tests, the team is better able to understand the way you think. It’s important to keep in mind that the results of these tests focus on the present, not the future. You may get completely different results if you take your test at another time.

What should I expect at a psychological testing appointment?

Your psychological testing appointment involves an initial evaluation as well as numerous questions that are carefully selected. It isn’t like a multiple-choice questionnaire with right and wrong answers. Instead, your provider collects information about your thought processes by the way you answer the questions.

While it might seem helpful for you to research the test you’re taking beforehand, this can actually have a negative impact on the results. If you know what to expect and plan your answers the way you think you should, this can result in inconsistencies that come across more negatively than your true results would. The team encourages you to come in with a clear and open mind for your psychological testing appointment.

If you need psychological testing to show that you’re able to serve in the military, gain custody of your child, or receive help for a learning disability, call The Green Room Psychological Services Inc. for an appointment today.
