Korn Ferry Numerical, Verbal and Logical tests:

Numerical reasoning tests assess your ability to utilize numerical information in your everyday work. Verbal tests examine how well you can extract and use written information. Logical tests measures your ability to discover abstract rules and patterns. For these assessments, Korn Ferry usually uses Talent-Q tests. Talent-Q is a global assessment company, and now part of the Korn Ferry Hay Group.

It is important to note that Talent Q's tests differ from other common psychometric tests in that they are adaptable. This means that depending on whether your response to a question is correct or incorrect, the system presents you with a subsequent question of either greater or lesser difficulty until your appropriate difficulty level is found.


You might also be asked to sit Raven’s progressive matrices – this test presents a pattern with a section missing and asks you to choose the correct shape to complete the pattern from a set of options. If you need help or have any more questions, our customer success team is available 24/7, and answers within 30 minutes.


Sample Question: 

Please identify the missing symbol: 

Talent-Q Elements Logical Test

Answer & Explanation

The correct answer:

Talent-Q Elements Logical Test

In each row the right cell consists of a duplication of the right symbol from the middle cell and an addition of a new symbol between the two identical symbols.

The complete logic:
In each row, the symbols in the middle cell are a combination of the symbols from the left and right (i.e. outer) cells so that:

✻  The left symbol in the middle cell is identical to the outer symbols in the left cell.

✻ The right symbol in the middle cell is identical to the outer symbols in the right cell.

The middle symbol in all three cells is different from all the other symbols in the row.
