Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)

A Measure of personality from the inside - core goals, values, drivers, and interests.

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. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive.

MVPI scales were developed after reviewing 80 years of theory and research on motives, values and interests.

The Hogan Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) is a tool which permits evaluation of the fit between an individual and the organisational culture and allows assessment of a person's motives.

Motives Values Preferences

Interests, goals, values, and preferences have a unique role to play in the explanation of social action.

The MVPI scales represent dimensions that have a historic presence in the literature on motivation. Hogan Assessments reviewed 80 years of theory and research on motives, values, and interests and developed 10 content scales.

Sample Reports

When examining MVPI 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
