Description: 

The Social Intelligence Test was designed to measure certain factors of judgment, information and memory related to dealing with people and carrying on social relationships. In school and college testing programs, the test is suggested, as a supplement to the usual types of tests, for identifying those students who are particularly good or particularly poor in the social abilities measured by the test.

The test may be helpful in identifying certain types of deficiencies in students who present problems of adjustment. In industrial and business testing program the test has been found useful in the selection and placement of employees in jobs involving interpersonal relationships, as in sales and supervisory work.
