Hogan Personality Tests

Recommended Posts

I have to sit a 'Hogan' personality quiz for a job

There are about 400 questions and they include stuff like:

'the average citizen has no idea what politicians are really up to - true/false"

'most of your friends are good actors - true/false'

'You despise people who dont care about 3rd world countries - true/false'

Tbh I've lost the will to live. I planned on trying to represent the common personality a large company wants to employ but these questions are so mental that I cant even do that

Devils advocate how do you know what that is ? perhaps they are looking for someone different

Some of those questions sound close to being discriminatory - is there anything there that asks you about your specific religious views, race, sexual preferences etc?

Some of them give an undecided option

Research is the key to human progress. True/False/Undecided

Art may contain greater truths than science. True/False/Undecided

I don't like people who can't live within their means. True/False/Undecided

I don't like the high taxes we pay in this country. True/False/Undecided

I dislike neighborhoods in which all the houses look alike. True/False/Undecided

I don't like people who ignore science. True/False/Undecided

Is that Paul Hogan? Fosters tastes like piss - true or false?

My guess is that you should avoid extreme positions on various things?

I think I failed a personality test once, which is maybe quite apt

There are loads on your relationship with your parents as well

Stuff like did you ever feel like leaving home young? Did your parents praise you for your acheivements? Did your parents love you?

"can a person who doesnt drink be trusted?" :wanker:

Its insanity that they ask this.

This is for a large engineering company

'most of your friends are good actors - true/false' - can't answer, the word 'actors' needs qualifying as it has two potential and different meanings

'You despise people who dont care about 3rd world countries - true/false'

^ my answers - in the third one the word 'despise' means it's an easy 'false' ignoring everything that follows that word.

I'm late to this thread so someone has probably already said this but faced with that shite gawd only knows what the 'right ' answer is. 

Its a bit like a Kafka novel crossed with catch 22

They should put in lots of control questions to try and trap people who are lying into giving inconsistent answers.

I did one once and was very pleased I managed to fool the tester. That was right before I blew him through the office wall with a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

It has to be against some of anti-discrimination or privacy law for them to ask stuff like that.

True, True, False (despise is a strong word).

Do I get the job ?

What do you think about public knife attacks? I find them abhorrent / that's not a knife!

What are your thoughts on the Undertaker? Friend / foe

Which is your preferred grip? Baseball / Vardon

Do you prefer playing for Brentford or Aston Villa?

Was this the interview that Aston Villa gave John Terry?

I'm pretty sure these are simply done to test your honesty rather than your opinions. 

Do you notice that some of the questions ask similar things but in a slightly different way?

its used because of the Hawthorne effect. Subjects will tend to give a perceived correct answer rather than the honest one. Just be consistent or you'll come across high on the Machiavellian scale.
