The Hogan Assessments

In business, there are two keys to success: money and people. At Hogan, we know people.

Our four core assessments, the Hogan Personality Inventory, Hogan Development Survey, Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory, and Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory measure normal personality characteristics, career derailment risks, core value drivers, and cognitive style, respectively. This multi-dimensional approach to personality assessment provides incredible insight that can serve as a powerful tool throughout the employee lifecycle.

hogan1The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a measure of normal, or bright-side personality – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best.

The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes the dark side of personality – qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success.

The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain.

People don’t always fit in a box. Our assessments offer the range of measurement required to understand people’s strengths, weaknesses, values, and approach to problem solving and accurately predict performance.

Personality is best understood from two perspectives: personality from the inside and personality from the outside. Personality from the inside, called identity, is how we think we behave. Personality from the outside, called reputation, is how others experience our behavior.

Reputation has two components. Normal personality describes the strengths and weaknesses people experience when you are at your best. Dark-side personality describes your derailers, personality characteristics that emerge during times of increased stress or pressure.
