INSIGHT Science and Engineering Skills and Mindset


INSIGHT Science and Engineering Professional (INSIGHT SE Pro) was created to meet industry’s need to objectively measure the mindset attributes and critical thinking skills that motivate and enable professionals working in these disciplines to contribute in a significant way to solving structurally, technologically, and scientifically complex problems.

Science and experienced professionals rely on their thinking skill to solve multi-dimensional problems and to make technically challenging decisions. Their knowledge must be up to date, their performance well practiced, and their thinking must be sound, logical and well reasoned. However, thinking skills are only part of the equation; strong thinkers also exhibit strong mental disciplines that drive them to identify opportunities and reduce risk.

INSIGHT SE Pro is a complete research-based solution: a two-part test that has been calibrated to objectively, reliably measure skills and mindset. Together, they deliver metrics to quantify performance potential and determine an individual’s fit for future roles and leadership.
