The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) describes reasoning style – the ability to evaluate sets of data, make decisions, solve problems, and avoid repeating past mistakes. By assessing reasoning style, you can identify candidates’ problem-solving style, understand their capacity, and identify areas for development.

The first measure of reasoning ability designed to predict real-world performance, the HBRI evaluates two kinds of problems solving:

 Qualitative Reasoning

Qualitative reasoning involves working with data visualization, logic, and verbal information to solve problems.

Quantitative Reasoning

Quantitative reasoning involves working with mathematical and spatial information to solve problems.
