The Human Information Processing® Survey (HIPS®) is a training tool for human resource development. Individuals are assessed in terms of their processing preference: left-brain, right-brain, integrated, or mixed. The HIP® Strategy and Tactics Profiles provide a description of a person’s overall approach, as well as the specific tactics he or she uses in problem solving and decision making.

The Professional Edition of the HIPS® Survey, which can suggest how an individual may perform in the workplace, utilizes consumable, self-scoring survey forms and Strategy and Tactics Profiles. For university personnel and others studying human information processing, the Research Edition includes reusable survey forms, response sheets, and Strategy Profiles. Both editions of the HIP® Survey are time- and cost-effective methods of measuring the degree to which individuals think with either brain hemisphere.

Level: Adult
Working Time: Approximately 40 minutes

The Survey booklets are consumable for the Professional edition of the HIPS, but they are reusable for the Research edition of the HIPS. All other materials in both editions are consumable, except the Administrator’s Manual.

The test is essentially the same in both editions, but the results are interpreted in a 4-page Strategy and Tactics Profile for the Professional edition, whereas the Research edition presents the results on a one-page Profile with little interpretation. In both editions, complete interpretation information is included in the Administrator’s Manual.
