Hogan Assessments

Hogan uses the science of personality assessment to help organizations select the right people, develop talented employees, build great leaders and effective teams, and impact the bottom line. Hogan’s assessments are based on more than four decades of research. Hogan remains a leader in the science of personality, providing its products and services in 56 countries and 47 languages.


Hogan‘s assessments were created to evaluate all aspects of the personality: the bright side, the dark side, and the inside. This is done through Hogan’s three core assessments: Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), Hogan Development Survey (HDS), and Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI).

Eliminates bias during hiring

Increases employee satisfaction

Helps build a strong organizational culture



Identity is the story we tell about ourselves – your identity is the person you think you are. Although it is possible that the way we perceive ourselves is close to what others think of us, we are usually mistaken. Often, we have too much appreciation for our talents, or we may be unjustifiably strict with ourselves.


Reputation, on the other hand, is what those around us think of us, and it depends on our behavior and social skills. Your reputation is a person that other people consider you, and your success at work depends on your reputation. That is why it is on this part of the personality that the best personality tests are based.


The bright side of the personality describes how we communicate with others when we are in the best of well-being. Whether your goal is to find the right employee or develop stronger leaders, evaluating this part of your personality gives you valuable knowledge about how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be in your organization.



The dark side of the personality comes to the fore with increased tension, stress and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations and ruin people’s chances of success. Having assessed the dark side of the personality, you can recognize and reduce the risk of activity before it has become a problem.


The inside of a personality is the goals, values, motives, and interests that determine what we desire and what we strive for. By evaluating the values, you can understand what motivates candidates to achieve success and in what positions and in what environment they will be most productive.


Hogan Personality Inventory

7 scales of the Hogan Personality Inventory predict job performance by measuring normal personality. The HPI is based on the five-factor model (Big 5) of personality and assesses what the website describes as “bright or normal” personalities; it is an invaluable tool for hiring the right candidates and developing stronger leaders.

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. 

This inventory takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete and provides instant results.

Hogan development survey

Hogan Development Survey

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

Unlike the HPI, the HDS focuses on the “dark side” of personality, not covered by the five-factor model of personality, mitigating performance issues before they occur. It does this by detecting those qualities that can be disruptive, increase strain, and reduce the likelihood of success. 

This survey takes 15 to 20 minutes and has been validated by more than 400 research studies. 

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

Motives, values, preferences inventory

Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory

10 scales of the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory identifies ideal jobs, positions, and work environments. The MVPI “describes personality from the inside,” predicting job satisfaction by measuring values, core goals, and the desire and strive to attain. 

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. 

This inventory takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete and has been validated by more than 400 research studies.
