I took one of these tests years ago for a role in a support helldesk.

The results came out that I was :
a) excellent at problem solving
b) crap at being in a team
c) crap at being micro-managed

When they fired me six months later, the reason given was “Despite being one of the best problem solvers (95% clean-up rate) I didn’t fit with the team, and had a personality clash with the manager”

I told them that was the exact result from the test, and they said “Well, we assumed everyone lied on the test”. Way to go…
