Hatchet Man said:Because at that time it was still in the trial stages. The official roll out of it was having some fits, but it would appear that it has gone live based on the OP's post. If that is the case (I am no longer in recruiting so I don't know) then it would be part of your overall "package", and used to figure out what you are best suited for.
TSD have been on trial for 2 years. Applicants were told it would not have any impact on the recruiting process. As of 1st Jan 2013, TSD results can be used in scoring applicants.
Hatchet Man said:The basic gist of it is to match your personality type with a suitable occupation, inconjuction with your CFAT score and interview. Basically it's another tool for the CF to make sure (or try to make sure) that the trade you want is a trade you are suitable for. Example, "I am really good at science and math and stuff, so I think I want to be Med Tech, but I don't like the site of blood, or sick people, or needles, is this still a good option for me?"
Only CFAT score indicate occupation suitability. TSD indicate suitability for the CF overall.
