Improving How People Can Respond

Historically, we asked people to respond to statements on the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), our measure of day-to-day personality, and the Hogan Development Survey (HDS), our measure of derailers, using True or False responses. In September 2018, we increased the response options to four: Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Agree, and Strongly Agree. This allows participants to better differentiate how much they agree or disagree with any statement.

Norm Updates

After four years, we have enough data using the four response options to build quality local and global norms. We are working on updating our norms and will have them available for clients to use in 2023. However, we are already seeing the benefits of the new norms.
