The HPI Turns 3…Million!

Hogan’s status as a global innovator in personality assessment is nothing new. In 1998, after administering the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) in more traditional formats for years, we were the first test publisher to develop a web-based assessment platform.

Smith argued that unregulated competition engenders unbridled, self-interested behavior that is ultimately good for the collective. This Darwinian, egocentric paradigm persisted for over 200 years as business leaders emphasized the division of labor, productivity, and efficient business processes while discounting the most consequential force on Earth—human nature. Indeed, the theoretical foundations of classical economics need qualified by recent ideas regarding human nature.
