Tips for writing Merits and Demerits in ISSB

The purpose of this test is to check what the candidate thinks about himself/herself and what is the opinion of the candidate about his/her personality. You will be asked to write your good and bad qualities, also known as Merits (Good Qualities) and Demerits (Bad Qualities).


  • Keep in mind that the Self Appraisal test will be taken on the first day of ISSB Tests which is also called Written Day or Psychologist Day and whatever you write in this test will be checked against your personality during the whole ISSB Test.
  • Try to write at least 5 merits, merits must consist of only 1 word to make a good impression rather than long sentences. 
  • Try NOT to write a lot of demerits, because they are the bad habits found in your personality so they must be kept to minimal, up to 3-4 maximum.
  • Always write those demerits which are related to your personality. Don’t write those demerits which are related to your eating habits or religion. For example, “I take a lot of tea” is not a demerit. Similarly, “I don’t offer my prayers” must also be avoided because it doesn’t make good impression.
  • Demerits must not coincide with your integrity and self-respect. For example, “I am a liar” or “I steal things” or “I usually don’t complete my work/job” are coinciding with your integrity and must not be written.
  • Remember that these merits/demerits will be asked again by the Deputy President in his interview along with the reasons, so be mentally prepared.
