HiPeople’s Dr. Jantje H. de Vries on HEXACO Deep Dive

What is the HEXACO Deep Dive?

The HEXACO Deep Dive is based on the IPIP-HEXACO Inventory, which is a six-dimensional model of human personality inventory created by Ashton & Lee in 2009. It is based on findings from a series of lexical studies involving several European and Asian languages. This assessment offers a holistic and very precise description of personality. 

 

It assesses six major dimensions of personality: 

  • Honesty-Humility
  • Emotionality
  • Extraversion
  • Agreeableness (versus Anger)
  • Conscientiousness
  • Openness to Experience

What does the Hexaco look like?

The inventory consists of 25 modules and contains 240 likert scale ratings. All in all, this test takes approximately 20-25 minutes.

When can you use the HEXACO deep dive?

As the HEXACO provides such a detailed, accurate and well-rounded personality description, it’s a practical and efficient tool for anyone who wants a precise and accurate picture of the candidates within their hiring platform. 

It’s especially useful for any open job role where you need to gather insights regarding how candidates behave in a work context. It helps you predict job performance and company fit
