The old Sales Personality Tests and Sales Aptitude testing methods are often inadequate in predicting sales potential. Total Sales Ability Assessment is the best solution. Businesses can receive 10 Free Tests of Total Sales Ability from Dan Joy, Inc.


HOLLYWOOD, FL, June 30, 2009 -- It takes more than just personality or psychology to close the sale. An old style sales aptitude test or sales personality test may be inadequate in predicting sales potential. Testing for Total Sales Ability (TM) is the best solution, and businesses who wish to hire good sales people can now receive 10 Free Sales Assessment Tests from Dan Joy, Inc. (

An old style pre-employment sales personality test may help determine a personality type, but may not accurately determine whether someone can actually sell. Or, a pre employment sales aptitude test may not take actual selling techniques (learnt by actual sales experience) into account.

The JOY Sales Tests (TM) go above and beyond the old sales aptitude tests and sales personality tests, by testing for Total Sales Ability (TM) instead. They test for sales prospecting ability, objection handling ability, sales closing ability, personality, psychology and more -- a total of up to 50+ sub-competencies, traits and/or advanced selling techniques crucial to sales success. These sales assessment tests can be used to test Business Development professionals at different career levels, e.g., a Sales Person, Sales Manager, Sales Director or VP of Sales & Marketing.

A hiring mistake can be costly. People often tend to hire someone with whom they feel comfortable, who is like them, who looks good, or who has industry knowledge. None of that necessarily means that the person can actually sell. The JOY Tests (TM) of Total Sales Ability (TM) can help reduce subjectivity and guesswork, and help employers make more objective hiring, promotion or retention decisions.

So, how can employers tell which job applicants can sell? They can start with 10 Free Sales Assessment Test units (Screening Tests) at
