The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) is a psychometric assessment that assesses 11 common dysfunctional dispositions The Dark side of personality that can interfere with a person’s ability to build relationships with others and create cohesive, goal oriented teams. 

These dispositions typically only are seen when the individual is highly stressed or overloaded and they are not able to actively manage their public image. 

People typically have 2-3 elevated scores and these are likely to be the behaviours seen under pressure.
