I interviewed for a position last Thursday 12/22 and the meeting went very well. BUT…?

The HR rep called me Friday afternoon and informed me that the hiring manager told her our meeting had gone very well. She let me know that they would sending me an aptitude test later that day.

The HR rep called me Friday afternoon and informed me that the hiring manager told her our meeting had gone very well. She let me know that they would sending me an aptitude test later that day. The hiring manager had mentioned it towards the end of the interview as well as there being a second interview to meet with a member of his team.

The test consist of 150 personality type questionsagree, strongly agree, disagree etc.

It also had about 30 number sequence type of questionswhich number would come next in the sequence.

There were about 20 grammer questions and then 30 more questions such as, New York City, Washington DC are to the US like Brasília, São Paulo are to Brazil.

I like figuring things out but some of the test was a bit complicated and I knew I was obviously being timed. Overall, I am not sure how I scored.

It is safe to assume this test will be the determining factor for second interview candidates and hiring decisions.
Forgot to mention there were several questions regarding shape patterns and find thie next in the sequence. Not sure what that was about.
