The Edwards Personal Preference Schedule, or EPPS, for short, is a personality test devised by Edwards on 1959 that is based closely on Murray's Needs Theory. The items are prepared to meet 15 needs from Murray's list, such as Achievement (to do one's best), Deference (to conform to the norms), Exhibition (to be at the center of attention), Intraception (to be able to analyze the motives of others). The inventory consists of 210 pairs of statements in which items from each of the 15 scales are paired with items from the other 14. Within each pair, the testees choose one statement as more characteristic of themselves. Due to the forced choice, the EPPS is an ipsative test, that is, the statements are made in relation to the strength of an individual's other needs. Hence, it is not absolute. It has an indistinct validity and reliability. ...more on Wikipedia about "Edwards Personal Preference Schedule"
Emotional intelligence tests are tests designed to quantify emotional intelligence and primarily done on either paper or a computer. A test often gives a result labeled EQ (Emotional quotient); the higher the EQ the more competent the person is with self understanding and general social situations. It is also interesting to notice that real life situations are in some sort a permanent ground for testing EQ, but naturally in ways that are harder to interpret than a normalized multiple-choice questionnaire test made by experts of the field and calibrated on a controlled population. ...more on Wikipedia about "Emotional intelligence tests"

Psychological testing is a field characterized by the use of small samples of behavior in order to infer larger generalizations about a given individual. The technical term for the science behind psychological testing is psychometrics. By samples of behavior, we mean observations of the individual over time performing tasks which have usually been prescribed beforehand. These responses are often compiled into statistical tables that allow the evaluator to compare the behavior of the individual being tested to the responses of a norm group. When multiple tests are administered, the procedure is referred to as full battery assessment . ...more on Wikipedia about "Psychological testing"
