Hogan assessments




The 7 scales of the Hogan Personality Inventory predicts job performance by measuring normal personality.

The HPI was developed specifically for the business community. It measures the personality characteristics necessary for success in careers, relationships, education, and life.

Whether you’re implementing organizational assessment processes or enhancing executive development, HPI reports can help you identify the fundamental factors that distinguish personalities and determine career success.

confidence, self-esteem, composure under pressure
initiative, competitiveness, desire for leadership roles
extraversion, gregarious, need for social interaction
tact, perceptiveness, ability to maintain relationships
self-discipline, responsibility, thoroughness
imagination, curiosity, creative potential
achievement orientation, valuing education




The 11 scales of the Hogan Development Survey can actually be strengths under normal circumstances. However, when you’re tired, under pressure, or otherwise distracted, these derailers often impede effectiveness and erode the quality of business and personal relationships.

The HDS can help mitigate the negative personality characteristics that derail success in careers, relationships, and life.

moody, hard to please, emotionally volatile
suspicious, sensitive to criticism, expecting betrayal
risk averse, resistant to change, slow to make decisions
aloof, uncommunicative, lacking empathy
overtly cooperative, privately irritable and stubborn
overly self-confident, arrogant, entitled
charming, risk-taking, excitement-seeking
dramatic, attention-seeking, interruptive
creative, but thinking and acting in eccentric ways
meticulous, precise, hard to please, micromanaging
eager to please, reluctant to act against popular opinion




The 10 scales of the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory identifies ideal jobs, positions, and work environments.

The MVPI allows your organization to ensure that a new hire’s values are consistent with those of the organization. The MVPI can also help diagnose areas of compatibility and conflict among team members.

Core values are part of a person’s identity, and constitute our key drivers – they are the things we desire and strive to attain.

responsive to attention, approval, praise
desiring success, accomplishment, status, control
oriented for fun, pleasure, enjoyment
wanting to help others and contribute to society
enjoying and seeking out social interaction
dedicated to strong personal beliefs
needing predictability, structure, order
interested in money, investment, business opportunities
concerned with look, feel, design of work products
seeks knowledge, research, technology, data

Hogan Reports


General employability

A simple, easy-to-use hiring tool that quickly measures how employable a candidate is based on basic job requirements.

This off-the-shelf report provides an immediate recommendation based on the assessment results that will identify each candidate as high, moderate or low fit for the job opening. Additionally, the report identifies the candidate’s strengths, areas of concern and interview style. Sample report:


The Basis Report combines psychological assessment with behavioral interviewing to evaluate the employment potential of job candidates.

Engaging Leader

Employee engagement is the extent to which employees think, feel, and act in ways that represent high levels of commitment to their organization. Engaged employees are motivated to contribute 100% of their knowledge, skills, and abilities to help their organization succeed.

Hogan Engaging Leader provides a picture of your underlying motives and values and how these influence your behavior at work. You’ll see what your team thinks about working for you – and how engaged they feel as a result. Engagement drives performance, so the more engaged and effective your team feels, the better their performance will be. Interpretive guidelines are shown alongside each section. Sample report:

Leader Focus

Leadership is complex and multi-dimensional. Regardless of your current or aspirational role, you are constantly making leadership impressions on those around you. For first-time leaders or managers, understanding how their personality characteristics define their leadership style can be difficult and hinder their ability to lead. Hogan’s Leader Focus Report aims to simplify and provide insight into six leadership dimensions that influence leadership style and effectiveness. Sample report:

High Potential

Hogan High Potential Talent Solution is development focused to equip an organization’s high-potential talent population to become the next leaders. Potential for what? Potential to build and lead teams that can consistently outperform the competition. Some people who appear to have leadership potential are often not effective leaders; conversely, many effective employees are overlooked for promotion because they do not self-promote enough to get noticed. The Hogan High Potential Model measures the three dimensions of leadership potential, highlighting individual strengths and ranked areas of actionable development. The intent is to prioritize areas where focus and attention should be targeted, resulting in maximized leadership potential. Sample report:


Hogan EQ assesses emotional intelligence, the ability to identify and manage your own and others’ emotions. People skills determine success, and individuals who lack the ability to build effective relationships are destined to fail – no matter how smart or talented they are. The easy-to-understand EQ Report provides an overall score, as well as scores and feedback for six emotional competencies. The report also includes a summary of likely behaviors, score pros and cons, and discussion points. Sample report:

Team Report

Hogan Team is designed to help team members gain a holistic, personality-based understanding of team strengths, weaknesses, and culture, and to understand how members’ personalities and motivators may support or hinder team effectiveness in light of the team’s character, business, context, and goals.
