So I just got back from checking my score for a department that used the NCJOSI for there written test. I got a 73% on it,  but that wasn't good enough. Its not the first time I've taken the NCJOSI and I know it won't be the last. I know for a fact i passed the basic skills part of the test, but the personal attributes part is what makes this test so tricky. They aske you questions like "Do you work better by yourself?" and you have 5 choices. Strongly Agree, Agree, Not Sure, Disagree, Strongly Disagree. There's no right or wrong answer to the question, but they use it to find people who fit there idea of the ideal police officer? I'm just wondering if anyone has any comments or tips on this or has seen this on other exams. I answer the questions honestly, but should I be answering them with a mindset of a police officer or as jolly old me. Any comments and advice is welcome.

NCJOSI stands for National Criminal Justice Officer Selection Invetory it comes from a company called IO solutions. I live in Illinois and there's a good amount of departments that use it. Not sure how many across the nation though. From what I have seen the failure rate is pretty high. Not sure if they use it in NC, but any department can order the test and use it.

I just took this test on july 13th 2010, I didn't see it to be too hard, but supposebly I failed! They sent me a letter without giving me a score or tell me where I went wrong at. I'm very disappointed and feel that they could have been a little more considerate! I really wanna know if I'm able to take this test again soon one day, to see if I can pass it this time. This is something that I really wanted to do for a long time now,and I dt wanna give up this chance! Does anyone know when I can take this test again?
