Oral Psychological Interview

Well I had my oral psychological interview today, and I can say I didn't do too well. I was asked to answer some questions fast and came up with the wrong answers. The psychologist never asked me about my written test but asked me some simple questions which I messed up on. I am now feeling that I didn't pass this part of the process.
I was so nervous that it took me three times to answer his questions. I felt like an idiot. I was wondering do these little interviews make or break you? Then another question was about my fathers brother and my brothers father and there relation. I swear I was like holy shit im lost. My nerves got the better of me. I guess it is up to the shrink now to decide my fate. Does anyone have an idea of how much the oral weighs in conjunction with the written psychological test.

The oral and written are both a complete portion of what the psychiatrist uses to determine your suitability for the job.

I am assuming that the bottle question was to determing how well you reacted under pressure and whether or not you could do so competently.

Ultimately, the decision lies in the psychiatrist and whether or not he is willing to "recommend" you for hire no matter how well you think you did on the written.

Do you think a psych would bounce me for being nervous and failing to answer his questions correctly on the first few tries?

If a train left Clevland at 10am and travelled at 50MPH, and a train left Detroit at noon travelling at 65 MPH, How far would the Cleveland train be from Cleveland after 2 hours?

Shocked

Sorry guys.  Is this for real?  Do you really have to go through this to be a corrections officer?  How hard can it be to babysit a bunch of cons?  I'd rather have a prison guard who can shoot straight instead of answer some stupid math questions.  Sucks that they make you do this for that job.

Dripster-

I hope you didn't think my response was directed at you personally.  I was more expressing shock that "the system" would make you answer those questions in the first place.  Seems like a waste of time (and money) to me.

During my oral psych for correctional officer nyc, the psychologist asked me why I said i feel uncomfortable around transgender. I was chocked because i did not remember that what i wrote down. I explain to her that i do hate transgender, i dont have any problem working with them, i just feel that is not the right thing in society. i dont know if my respond would help me recover what i was not suppose to say.
Can someone give me an idea. i have not get any letter or email from the dept yet.
