What Do the BAT Pymetrics Assessment Assess?

The 12 Pymetrics Games measure around 90 traits in 9 categories:

  • Attention
  • Decision Making
  • Effort
  • Emotion
  • Fairness
  • Focus
  • Generosity
  • Learning
  • Risk Tolerance

Each Pymetrics game actually assesses more than one category, So, when taking the BAT Pymetrics test (and when preparing for it), consider your particular position and what combination of traits is best for it.

Here are four examples:

  • Technical – Attention and Focus (Arrows Game), Effort  (Easy/Hard Game)
  • Management – Decision Making (Easy/Hard Game), Risk Tolerance (Balloon & Money Exchange Game)
  • Marketing – Emotion (Faces Game), Decision Making (Easy/Hard Game)
  • Legal - Fairness (Money Exchange Game), Focus (Arrows Game)

Can You (and Should You) Prepare for Your BAT Pymetrics Test?

If you have already looked through British American Tobacco's selection process webpage, you might have found their tip to "just be you".

While that might be the case with interviews (again, might), it is certainly not the case in the Pymetrics Games.

Well, if you want to succeed.

This taps directly into the two most common misconceptions about the BAT Pymetrics Games:

  • Misconception #1 - These are pretty simple games you can do on the fly and shouldn’t prepare for them.
  • Misconception #2 - There are no right or wrong answers in Pymetrics games, so there is no way of preparing for them.

Firstly, Pymetrics' innocent-looking games are not simple at all. They operate on a complex AI mechanism that constantly monitors your actions, and creates your profile for BAT. If you want to actually show the best of you, you need to know what the games measure, and how to prepare.

Secondly, there are right and wrong answers. Yes, there are indeed no hard and fast “right answers” as on a multiple-choice question, but since Pymetrics is a screening tool, there are definitely better and worse ways for playing the games.
