Our third Core Assessment is the invaluable Hartman Value Profile (HVP). Based upon the research of Robert S. Hartman’s formal axiology, this unique assessment measures each individual’s problem solving skills and their ability to avoid the blind spots associated with situational bias. In essence, the HVP assessment measures – with uncanny accuracy – an individual’s unique Thinking Styles.
The HVP is not a psychological, intelligence, or aptitude test. This assessment objectively captures your specific thinking pattern and documents your brain’s natural selection process when making decisions. Understanding the ability to process information is directly linked to leveraging strengths and limiting potential performance blockers. Thinking and mental processing ability, like a musical or sports talent, can be learned and improved.
However, to improve one’s decision-making, an individual must first fully understand the balance of thinking style strengths and challenges.
There are three core world and self thinking dimensions: People, Task, and Systems.
- People (Intuitive Thinking) is measured by assessing Empathy.
- Task (Practical Thinking) is measured by assessing Practical Judgment and Role Awareness.
- Systems (Conceptual Thinking) is measured using Systems Judgment and Self Direction.
Our HVP report comes in two iterations (Sales and Management), occupationally focused to provide users with situational insights surrounding their problem solving, communication, prioritized strengths, and areas for personal development.
