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:

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