- Error checking: This is to evaluate how perfect the candidate to evaluate the errors in the given information is.
2. Behaviour Testing
These tests are done to evaluate the behavioral status of the candidate through which we can explore how the candidate communicates, the way to handle the setbacks and how they speak to and manage their team.

Here we will discuss with one example of the behavioural tests that is Thomas personal profile analysis and it is used to evaluate four main factors- influence, compliance, steadiness and dominance.
3. Personality Test
