Spatial Reasoning

Spatial reasoning, or spatial visualization, is the ability to mentally manipulate two and three-dimensional objects.

Spatial Reasoning Tests

Spatial reasoning tests determine a person’s capacity to visualize images and twist and turn them to a specific shape, and to draw conclusions about the objects from limited information.

A person’s spatial ability is not influenced by their education, culture, or language, so spatial aptitude tests are one of the most commonly used assessments to gauge cognitive ability.

Spatial Visualization in the Workplace

One’s ability to assess abstract problems and determine solutions is impacted by their spatial visualization skills.

Evaluating whether a job candidate possesses the necessary spatial ability to be successful in their job field is essential to selecting the right person for the job.

Certain roles require possession of well-developed spatial visualization skills, skills that are essential for performing the duties necessary for success in their fields.

They include:

  • Architects
  • Taxi Drivers
  • Visual Designers
  • Air Traffic Controllers

Employees whose talents fit the job are more productive, happier and stay longer.

  • Problem-Solving Skills
  • Critical Thinking Skills
  • Analytical Skills

berke Spatial Reasoning Test

Berke directly measures Logical Reasoning, among three other core problem solving abilities, as part of its core assessment.

Our team of workplace psychologists partners with you to develop job profiles that outline what levels of each trait influence success in a given role.

That Job Profile is used to develop the scoring and weighting mechanism for the assessment, helping to identify whether the person is a high, medium, or low fit for the job.
