Pyschology test ( Story Writing ) in ISSB – Sibtain Afzaal
The third most important series of tests of ISSB psychology assessment demands the candidates to write stories. These are not the stories what we read in childhood but stories which demand concentration and serious mindset. These stories clearly put our thoughts and perceptions on paper and help psychologist make assessment of what we are.
Story writing tests are divided into two parts. In the first part we are shown an image which is mostly a sketch, consisting of some characters or objects. It is in Pakistani terms called story writing test. But its actual psychology name is “Thematic Apprehension Test.” We are asked to look at it carefully for 30 seconds and then we are given 30 more seconds to think of a story which describes the situation in that picture. After that 3 and half min are given to us to write a story on that scene which we have just seen.
Here is an example

In the other type of story writing test, you are given a statement, a sentence of some sort which is incomplete, giving you a vague idea about some situation, and you have to continue on wards and make a story out of it. I believe this test is a bit tricky and requires more concentration then imagination compared to the above mentioned story writing test. Same way you are given 30 seconds to think and then 3 min to write a story.
