First Step of Psychological Testing: Familiarisation

9 January 2013

In ESA's Astronaut Selection, the first step of psychological testing is primarily computer-based. Here, you can download sample files similar to those faced by the selected applicants. 
After downloading, you will need to extract the files. Viewing requires Adobe Flash Player on your computer, which is free to download. Once extracted you should double-click each file with the extension '.html' to start the sample test. When the Adobe Flash Player Security window pops up, click ‘OK’. Then you will be able to click ‘START’ or ‘FORWARD’ in your internet browser and browse through the sample test files to test yourself against what the selected candidates may encounter in their first step of psychological testing.
