Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI)

The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) evaluates a person ability to solve problems and make business-related decisions using textual, graphic, and quantitative data. Many psychologists believe that cognitive ability is the single best predictor of occupational performance and other important outcomes, including health, wealth, and life satisfaction.

The HBRI is the first measure of reasoning ability based on a theory of intelligence and designed exclusively to predict real-world performance.

It is based on evolutionary psychology whereby intelligence is a function of meta representational competence the ability to reflect on one past actions, determine where the problems have occurred, and then devise methods to avoid repeating those problems in the future.

Individual differences in this cognitive capacity enhance performance in every significant domain of human action.

The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory is a significant advance in the measurement of cognitive ability for business managers and raises the industry standard.

The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory evaluates Strategic and Tactical reasoning using three categories of business data:



  1. Verbal: information based on conversations, e-mails, and written reports.hogan_hbri
