    Does anyone out there know anything about the Hartman Value Profile test??? It's a personality/attitude test for new prospective employees. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    i found this:
    If you mean "how to score" the HVP, you'll find that in Hartman's clinical manual, available from the Hartman Institute's web site, and also in the collection: Forms of Value and Valuation, edited by Rem Edwards.

    If you mean, "what is the universal norm on which the HVP is based," that is also there.

    If you studied Hartman, you probably know there are no "correct answers" other than the one the person honestly puts down. It is a picture of how we uniquely match and differ from the universal norm.

    If it would be helpful, you could score online by going to http://thinkingpattern.com and clicking on the upper right corner. When the login page appears, enter aca as your User ID and 1126 as your Password. The results will come to you within minutes.

    I'll be very happen to speak with you more about this if you wish.

    My uneducated guess on this. it would be illegal to hire or not hire someone based on this test alone. it should be used a tool only. I would think companies would want to hire people who can work together as a team. critical thinking..and can be self directed..
    but i had been in the same job,a steelworker for 28 yrs. and now happily retired..

    I found that, too, and thank you. But when I tried to use the login it refused it. Too old I guess. I agree about the legality of this, but the test is being required by a very elite automotive dealership for their technicians and have refused applicants based on the results.

    It's kind of like the old Wunderlich (sp??) tests used several years ago. They are the newest darlings of the HR world. Personally, I think too much weight is placed on test results of this nature and not on the actual candidate as a person.

    Thanks to everyone for the comments. I read the legal link top to bottom and also read the link that it contained. The test is over and it seemed to have gone fairly well. Won't know until the HR representative calls my family member and reports. We'll see. But thanks again for all the help.
