Default Hogan Personality Imventory? Done one before?

Greetings all

Current Paramedic-Firefighter, applying to a municipal agency that has sent me link to "Hogan Personality Inventory"

Wondering if anyone from LEO / Fire community has done this? Does it include probing by aliens or anything? Going to log in and complete this evening - have done some reading upon it and curious as to what I should expect?

Figure I'd ask here as LEO has to partake in same / similar steps for hiring process.

It'll probably look alien, but here's what it's about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Fiv...onality_traits

Summary:

The HoganŽ Personality Inventory (HPI)

The HPI is the industry standard for measuring personality as it relates to job performance. The deeply-ingrained personal characteristics measured by the HPI impact how individuals approach work and interaction with others. Based on the Five-Factor Model of personality and 28+ years of criterion-referenced validation research and continual refinement, the HPI provides insight regarding the “bright side” of personality – behavioral tendencies that are quickly noticed and capable of enhancing job performance. From a broad selection standpoint, the HPI is the foundation for countless validated selection systems designed to identify candidates whose personal characteristics and competencies correspond with the demands of jobs. From a development standpoint, the HPI can be used to help individuals understand the impression they make on others via their automatic and habitual response tendencies.

Might not differ a lot in the way the questions are presented, but the intent of the MMPI is to identify personality disorders - see http://psychology.about.com/od/psych...ing/a/mmpi.htm

IIRC from my Psych testing class, the test was originally developed by giving the questions to a set of mental patients who had been diagnosed with various disorders. Answers that tend to match the answers from a patient with a particular disorder are suggestive that the test-taker might have a similar disorder.

See also http://occmed.oxfordjournals.org/content/59/2/135.full and much more detail at http://www.falseallegations.com/mmpi-bw.htm

As I remember the MMPI, the written test consisted of some 500 questions many of which were repeated, but stated differently. I understood the test was to determine passive/aggressive behavior, though I imagine other personality traits were detected as well. I must have been fine, as I was hired.

Repetitive questioning - psychological based. To be determined.

I took something similar, just answer the questions and don't try to get all tricky by reading into the questions.
