Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)

Introduction

The HPI evaluates people on seven well-known dimensions or characteristics that influence occupational success

Different characteristics are important for success in different jobs, and characteristics that are important in one job may interfere with performance in others. The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) evaluates people on seven well-known dimensions or characteristics that influence occupational success.

  • It describes how he or she is likely to act in various circumstances;
  • It notes the candidate's strengths and shortcomings, and;
  • It makes some suggestions about how to manage your career.

Below is the HPI graph on which the report is based, and definitions for the seven dimensions.
