'Britain is a Nation of Paedophiles' to paraphrase. What a numpty sending a 12 year old explicit messages, especially on tour using paradigm. Unless he had a private paid for connection, but doesn't make it any better.
That's why they are called 'psychometric tests' and not just 'questions'. If you were asked 'do you fiddle with young children?' what would be your response, even if you did? The idea is to tease out the psychological profile of those being tested, even if they are trying to hide what they don't think the tester wants to find out.
So if the question was posed, and the answer given was "yes I fiddle with young children". What would the tester decide was the case? a) This man is a fantasist, b) this man is a squaddie with the appropriate sense of humour, c) this man is a potential child molester but honest with it, or d) all of the above?
The trouble with trick cyclists is that their viewpoint seems to be subjective. Few other trades are given so much scrutiny. If that is the case, how many others have slipped through the 'psychometric net'?
we have psychometric tests in our trade. One i remember they put a Jerrican of unleaded petrol next to your car with the car filler cap open and a plastic Coke bottle fashioned into a funnel. You are left alone for 5 mins and the 3 blokes in white coats stand at the edge of the car park with clip boards watching. If you close the cap and place the Jerrican away from the car you are sent to the RMP, if you proceed to fill your car with the jerrican and then throw the now empty can into the nearest skip for it to catch fire a few days later your made a WO1 straight away.
