THE CAVALIER- SSB / NDA / CDS / CAPF / AFCAT / ACC / COAST GUARD / X&Y GROUP COACHING
Selection process adopted by the Service Selection Boards (SSB) involves assessing the personality of a candidate using three different methods. One of these uses group activities commonly known as "Group Tasks". We are well aware that man lives in a society, that is a group, and his behaviour is best studied in such a context. At the SSB, small groups of 6 to 10 candidates are formed and they are required to participate in group tasks as a member. Group Testing Officer (GTO) closely observes the way a candidate participates in various tasks and draws his conclusions regarding different qualities and builds a personality profile. The tasks are so designed that an average young person can comfortably participate. Group Tasks have a reasonable mix of indoor and outdoor activities and GTO launches the group in their tasks with fair amount of enthusiasm and cheer.
