What is SRT ??

Situation Reaction Test is a test of general intelligence i.e. common sense. In our every day life, many a times we come across, common and uncommon situations when we are called upon to enact a right and an appropriate action plan so as to make the situation stable. SRT is conducted in-order to unearth the candidate's attributes of psychology i.e. perception, cognition and behavior which in turn are used by the psychologist to assess the OLQs of the candidates. Intelligence, Reasoning Ability and Power of Decision are some of the OLQs which are assessed.

In SRT the candidate gives his spontaneous reaction for a given particular situation and this spontaneity reveals the overall personality of the candidate and helps the psychologist in evaluating the candidate.

Remember, in SRT no special intelligence and knowledge is required for solving the situations.

 

What to do in SRT ??

In SRT, a candidate is required to solve 60 situation (questions) in 30 min. As i have already told you that no special intelligence is required for solving the situation, therefore the situations which are given for solving resembles with those confronted by all of us in day to day life.

Remember, while solving a situation candidate just has to present his own attitude and approach for solving the same.

Sometimes an imagenary character is introduced and he is made to face the situation and asked to find out a solution. Whatever the name given to this character, in reality he is none other that the candidate himself.

 

RULES

Time for solving each problem is 30 sec.

Total time duration of test is 30 min.

60 situations/questions are given to the candidates

 

 

Worth Noting Point

The time limit for solving each situation has been purposely kept very small so as to ensure that candidate gives his spontaneous response. This will help the psychologist in knowing the true personality of the candidate.

 

 

Action Plan - THE WINNING STRATEGY

The winning strategy for SRT requires that the candidate must write minimum possible words in his response, using action words and punctuation marks.

Keep this in Mind :-

Never write absolute reaction, write complete action.

For Example :-

Just before the starting of the quiz, he found his partner missing. He...........

Reaction :-

He took the substitute partner.

Complete Action :-

He took the substitute partner, played the quiz and won it.

GUIDELINES

Write your response with positive approach and no negative vibration should creep into your response.

Your responses should reflect the OLQs. For achieving this goal you must do a realistic analysis of the question.

There is a possibility that one situation is repeated in other form. Therefore, you have to be cautious not to contradict an expression of your personality already given in respect of previous situation.

Always keep your mind cool and calm with zero entropy.

 

 

Piece of Advice

Candidate should aim to attempt all the question in given time constraint. But, if at any point of time candidate feels that he is not able to do so then atleast he should completely answer the questions which he will going to attempt. Remember, run for quality and not for quantity.
