HOW YOU THINK?

The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) describes reasoning style – the ability to evaluate sets of data and solve problems. The HBRI was developed specifically for the business community to identify differences in problem-solving style and reasoning ability making it a powerful tool that can be used throughout the employee lifecycle.

The first measure of reasoning ability designed to predict real-world performance, the HBRI evaluates two kinds of problems solving:

  • Tactical Reasoning
    the ability to solve problems and come to sensible conclusions once the facts are known. High scorers tend to be disciplined, steady, and precise.
  • Strategic Reasoning
    the ability to detect errors, gaps, and logical flaws in graphs, memos, diagrams, written reports, numerical projections, and tables of data. High scorers tend to be curious and interested in feedback.
