The ‘Bright Side’ of personality

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a versatile tool which focusses on normal or ‘bright side’ personality traits – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. Providing in-depth insight into how people work and lead, the HPI is linked to on-the-job performance and can be used for selection and hiring and personal and leadership development.

Over more than 25 years, the HPI was refined on the basis of performance-related validity research as the authors sought to “capture excellence” across a wide range of jobs; identifying the facets of personality that distinguish the best from the rest. The result is a 206 item questionnaire which identifies the individuals most likely to be effective in any role, and the roles in which individuals are likely to be most effective. It is the first normal range personality questionnaire based on the five-factor model of personality designed specifically for occupational assessment.

HPI Uses

Staff Selection

The HPI has been designed to predict job performance and is rooted in unrivalled performance related validation. Consistent and reliable performance in any job depends on matching the individual’s temperament to the demands of that role and the HPI provides ‘sharp focus’ assessment to this end.

Personal Development

Self-knowledge is the key to maximising potential. An individual’s awareness of which personality characteristics are assets and which will limit performance provides the necessary basis for personal development. We all need to learn to manage those temperaments, impulses and dispositions that work against career success. Whether through coaching or other personal development programmes, HPI feedback contributes high status information to the process.

Staff Retention

The fall-out from bad appointment decisions will be evident in poor performance and low retention. Staff appointed to roles for which they are temperamentally unsuited are unlikely to resist opportunities for more fruitful employment elsewhere. The use of the HPI will allow appropriate redeployment of valued staff into more suitable roles.

Leadership

The HPI can also be used for leadership development. The tool helps interpret leader qualities and behaviour, and how they may be perceived by others, whilst also highlighting potential areas for development.

Test User Ability – Remote Training Course
Dec 7 all-day
Please note this workshop is currently being held online.

We offer professional training courses in occupational testing in line with British Psychological Society (BPS) requirements. Our TUA & TUP course enables you to gain qualifications for Assistant Test User, Test User Ability and Test User Personality. These are the national standards for the professional use of psychometric tests and enable you to be listed on the BPS Register of Qualifications in Test Use (BPS RQTU).

  • The Assistant Test User course qualifies delegates to administer both ability and personality tests and covers concepts such as computer-based testing and ethical test use.
  • The Test User Occupational Ability course qualifies delegates to administer, interpret and give oral and written feedback on ability, intelligence and aptitude tests.
  • The Test User Occupational Personality qualifies delegates in the assessment of personality and the use of the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) and the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI). We also offer an option to qualify in the EQ-i 2.0 and EQ360 assessments rather than the Hogan assessments should you wish.

PCL’s distance learning TUA & TUP course offers a flexible approach to completing this course. You only need to attend two days face-to-face to learn your test administration and HPI, HDS and MVPI feedback skills. The rest of the work is done via pre and post coursework.

Hogan Advanced Interpretation Workshop – Online Training Course
Dec 10 all-day

This one-day workshop is a hands-on, fast-paced session that prepares you for interpreting scale combinations more skillfully, connecting scales across assessments and interpreting complex combinations with ease.

You’ll be addressing scale and subscale level data to draw effective developmental conclusions, and aid in getting the most value from the Hogan suite of assessments.

Is this course right for me?

If you’re looking for a more technical angle on the Hogan assessments and feel that a deeper knowledge of the scales and subscales would be useful, this course is for you. Similarly, if you’re working with high-stakes parties or particularly challenging feedback scenarios, this workshop will give you the skills to be more confident in your conclusions.
