The Hogan Personality Inventory, and speculation on its applicability to in-house attorneys

As described on the website of Hogan Assessments, “The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a measure of normal personality and is used to predict job performance. The HPI was the first inventory of normal personality based on the Five-Factor Model and developed specifically for the business community. The HPI is a high-quality psychometric evaluation of personality characteristics that identifies the fundamental factors that distinguish personalities and determine career success.”

The HPI scales all make sense for in-house counsel:

“Service Orientation: being attentive, pleasant, and courteous to customers

Stress Tolerance: being able to handle stress, even-tempered, and calm under fire

Reliability: honesty, integrity, and positive organizational citizenship

Clerical Potential: ability to follow directions, pay attention to detail, and communicate clearly

Sales Potential: energy, social skills, and the ability to solve problems for customers

Managerial Potential: leadership ability, planning, and decision-making skills.”

Has any legal department tried out the HPI?
