How to Answer This Question?

In the Gallup test, as in all personality profiling tests, there is no single correct answer to a single question.

Rather, your personality profile should be considered as a whole, taking into account the position you are after.

In this example, the question assesses the Deliberative theme (strength) in the Gallup test.

  • Marking "Strongly Describes Me" on the left-hand side of the scale, therefore, presents a desirable trait for positions that require a careful, methodical approach, such as a scientist or a health & safety engineer.
  • Marking "Strongly Describes Me" on the right-hand side of the scale, on the other hand, presents a desirable trait for positions that require quick and often intuitive decision-making.

Gallup Assessment Sample Question #2

In this example, the question assesses the Analytical theme (strength) in the Gallup test.

  • Marking "Strongly Describes Me" on the left-hand side of the scale, therefore, presents a desirable trait for positions that require research or a deep understanding of data, such as an analyst or an academic.
  • Marking "Strongly Describes Me" on the right-hand side of the scale, on the other hand, presents a desirable trait for results-driven positions, such as sales or marketing.

What Is the Westpac Sonru Video Interview?

The Westpac Sonru Video Interview is the second stage of Westpac's hiring process. Sonru is an online platform for conducting video-based interviews, acquired by Modern Hire in 2020.

It is mostly a technical platform where interview questions are selected and later assessed by HR personnel. Therefore, there is no single set of Sonru video interview questions, and they may vary depending on the particular job and place, as in any traditional interview.

However, one of the main goals of the Westpac Video Interview is to see if the traits you have presented in the Gallup Assessment are also apparent in an interview setting.

 

The Westpac Assessment Test Preparation will help you ace the Sonru Video Interview by understanding the traits required for your particular job, and how to express them in an interview.
