Matrigma measures general mental ability and is used to predict career success and job performance.

Cognitive ability concerns, among other things, a person’s aptitude for accurate problem solving, logical reasoning and the ability to grasp new information – capabilities that are critical in the world of work.

Matrigma is a nonverbal type of reasoning test that captures fluid intelligence, i.e. the ability to solve problems with no prior knowledge or experience. Matrigma identifies individual potential across cultures regardless of social or educational background.

Research shows that a candidate’s level of cognitive ability helps to predict job performance, job satisfaction, voluntary turnover, training performance, as well as counter-productive work behaviours. In more complex jobs such as managerial or specialist roles, cognitive ability has an even higher impact.

Matrigma is a scientifically robust instrument and a strong predictor of job performance. The test results will help predict behaviours such as critical reasoning skills, clear thinking, learning skills and sound decision making.
