was wondering what other pilots opinions are about how much emphasis an airline places on a psychological/cognitive test during the interview processes. are they a pass fail test or does the airline look at the whole interview process (sim, actual interview, experience) and then make the decision? i have recently had an interview with an airline that administered those tests and while taking the cognitive test i started to think that the airline is judging our ability to fly an airplane, work well with other crewmembers, and our hard work ethic to be a pilot by our ability to ability to keep a line in a cirlce while remembering a number sequence at the same time. just seems a little odd that this is something the airlines use in making a decsion about pilot applicants that are already commercial, atp or type rated pilots by the faa. what do others think about these tests?
