Tell me about Emergenetics

This company I want to work for is big into these Emergenetics tests to tell them what areas you'll be successful developing.

My first thought was "lol personality tests" so then I read the Emergenetics website and I was like "lol personality tests that cost money"

Has anybody done this before? What sort of things do they ask you?
Seems to me like steering it would be easy.

I took a look at the psychometric profile, based on the typical models and procedures that are run for this sort of thing they do check out. I know nothing of the actual instrumentation, however.

edit: it's a seven factor model based on a decades old theory consisting of four factors for cognition and three for behavior. Pretty straight forward, these types of things show up in multiple companies' hiring process. Expect a bunch of metrics that are meant to identify each factor, but you won't necessarily be able to figure out which is which or how they are used in the calculations.

I think the survival of such a company (i am guessing it's small) depends on a lot more than their tests being particularly accurate, but of course that's a good place to start.
