How to Write the Self Description Test (SDT) for SSB

by Rahul Sharma Writer
The second day of SSB calls for several psychological tests, which aim to aim to judge the mental, emotional, social aptitude of candidates. Self Description test ( SDT) is one such obstacle that is crafted by professional and leading army psychologists.  In the test, candidates are asked to write opinions of their parents, teachers, friends, and you hold about yourself in a given time span, ending the series of such questions with one a final one that asks, “What sort of a person you want to become in life?”, in one way or the other. The motive behind asking for such self-appraisal isn’t to make a list of your good behavior or qualities, but to check what views you hold about yourself. In short, the SDT round judges you for your ego or inferiority complex, and only the ones having nothing or little of both could clear the rounds of Indian Air Force recruitment 2020. So if your MLSU results 2019 are now in your hands, and you are all for starting your SSB preparation, then here are 4 tips on how to write the Self Description test.

Never Bluff

SSB or not, we always go for a bluff when asked for self-assessment. We are the heroes of our stories, when in reality all we were were mere spectators. Our narration starts with us brining the sun up, and taking every other responsibility on our shoulders till it went down. The fact is, psychologists can see through our self-amplification of our persona, and tell the reality. Using words like “the most honest/brave/sincere/ etc. shows that you are anything but.

Be To the Point

Self-appraisal is instant gratification of a kind, and that’s why candidates often lose track when engaged in such activity. The board for Indian Air Force recruitment 2020 is expecting a concise response, with points that fulfill the criteria of the test. So don’t get carried away during the duration of the test, and focus on answering in as summarised way as possible.

Write Points that Show Your Character and Qualities

In contrast with point one, you don’t need to glorify you or any else in your answer. Just put some points that tell your interest, qualities, opinions, and daily activities that support your answer. Right your habits and measures that you take on a timely basis to become a better version of yourself.

Practice Writing SD Test, But Never Memorize it

It’s not much of an advice that you should practice for your any test or exam that you plan to take on in the future. But when it comes to preparing for SDT, things take a different turn. As the questions that are going to ask for the test are available on many online platforms, it’s easier than ever to target those very questions to improve your writing and answering skills. But in a bid to write the best answer possible, students get caught in revising and memorizing their best practice answer. Writing your prepared answers would always look like a fake one reading to your responses, as it will be low on errors, dynamics, and flaws that show make up a response in real-time.
