Hogan Judgment Report

Judgment Is About Making Good Decisions

The Hogan Judgment Report draws on this powerful new assessment and provides an in-depth description of participants’ information-processing style, decision-making approach, decision-making style, reactions to feedback, and openness to feedback and coaching. Good judgment involves being willing to acknowledge and fix bad decisions, and learn from experience. Armed with this powerful knowledge, participants can improve their decision-making and judgment.

JUD Quick Facts


** The Judgment assessment has 3 sections: a timed (10 minutes) 15 item section measuring numerical ability, a timed (2 minutes) 48 item section measuring verbal ability, and an untimed section on how information is used.



The first to combine cognitive ability, bright- and dark-side personality, and values, the Hogan Judgment assessment consists of two brief measures related to verbal and numerical reasoning, three independent scales that assess non-cognitive attributes that influence how an individual approaches decisions, and an assessment of post-decision reactions, including responses to negative feedback.

Real decision-making is rapid, biased, and subconscious. And we rationalize our decisions after the fact. Having good judgment mostly concerns fixing (or not repeating) bad decisions.

MORE THAN IQ?   It’s clear that some people have better judgment than others. But what sets them apart? Although most people would say intelligence, that doesn’t account for the abundance of very smart people who continually make very bad decisions.


The Hogan Judgment Model separates judgment into three distinct areas:

LEARN:  How you prefer to learn

How quickly you process complex information affects your decisions. Some people prefer to think in terms of words and images, and some people prefer to think in terms of numbers and symbols.

DECIDE:  How you make decisions

Your personality determines the bias in your decision-making process, whether it’s avoiding threats vs. seeking rewards, thinking tactically vs. thinking strategically, or relying on data vs. trusting your gut.

ADAPT:  How you react to decisions

At some point, you’ll make a bad decision. Will you accept the blame and change course, or will you double down? What you do next will determine the course of your career, and perhaps your company.
