Hogan personality Inventory

A Measure of normal personality used to predict job performance.

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) describes normal, or bright-side personality – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. Whether your goal is to find the right hire or develop stronger leaders, assessing normal personality gives you valuable insight into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be.

Sample Report

Hogan Personality Inventory

Developed in the 1980s

The HPI was developed in the 1980s in the context of socio-analytic theory. Within this model, getting along with and getting ahead of others are seen as the dominant themes in social life. The HPI captures key behavioural tendencies relevant to these life themes and is based on the five-factor model of personality.

Sample Report

When examining HPI scale scores, it is important to remember that high scores are not necessarily better, and low scores are not necessarily worse. Every scale score reflects distinct strengths and shortcomings. Learn more in the Hogan Certification Workshop.
