Credibility and Reliability

HATS is the result of over 30 years of research into what makes people successful at work by Dr Dan Harrison. It combines ParadoxTechnology™ with 175 behavioural traits including working preferences, motivations, work values, interpersonal skills, interests and attitudes.

  • ParadoxTechnology™ sets HATS well apart from its competitors who often rely on bipolar assessments which can be fooled and can produce inaccurate results.
  • The SmartQuestionnaire™ is the foundation for all the reports. It cannot be fooled and has a consistency monitor to ensure accuracy of replies. It performs over 8,000 cross matches behind the scenes and is the equivalent of a whole day’s multiple choice questioning and/or 2071 questions.


  • HATS is used by over 2 million people in 46 countries and is translated into 25 different languages.
  • Customers include many national and international companies, SME’s, public sector and not for profit organisations.
