Hogan worked with Bruce Altizer and Alessa Natale to study the relationship between mindfulness and personality. Bruce and Alessa used the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), the Hogan Development Survey (HDS), and two mindfulness instruments (the Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale and the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire) to estimate correlations between the two constructs and to create regression equations that predict mindfulness. They found high Adjustment, high Ambition, low Excitable, low Cautious, and low Leisurely scores predict higher mindfulness scores. Their research identifies the characteristics of people who are more naturally mindful and helps practitioners target mindfulness techniques for people based on their personality. Bruce Altizer is a partner at Altizer Performance Partners and an adjunct lecturer at Florida International University’s Chapman School of Business. Alessa Natale is a contributing research associate at Altizer Performance Partners and a graduate student in the industrial-organizational psychology program at Baruch College.
