The Leadership Judgement Indicator 2 (LJI-2) was created to measure the level of “leadership wisdom” that the respondent uses in decision-making. Using a series of problem-solving scenarios, the LJI-2 requires the respondent to rate the appropriateness of various courses of action in response to each challenge. The scenarios have been crafted from the principles underlying leadership theory and there is a single “best fit” way to react to each scenario.

The advantage of the measurement approach used by the LJI-2 is that the respondent is being asked to demonstrate their level of leadership wisdom through the questionnaire. Responses are scored for correctness in terms of achieving desirable business outcomes in specific situations.
This measurement is in stark contrast to traditional assessment tools where respondents are asked to describe their typical ways of behaving (with a view to how the individual is likely to behave most of the time). Such self-report approaches work well when the objective is to gain insight about an individual's self-concept, but the LJI-2 is designed to go beyond the measurement of the typical or preferred style of a respondent - it sets out to assess how well that individual understands the importance of sometimes behaving against their preferred style.
Online access to the LJI-2 on our HTS 5 platform is via a subscription model, where users pay an annual fee for periodic maintenance and upgrades to new features. This fee is being waived during the pandemic for 2020, as Hogrefe invites you use HTS 5 for your assessment needs. An online manual is also available at no charge during this time.
When you order test materials for the first time we request that you provide documentation indicating you have the requisite qualifications or experience to administer psychological tests. Please download and complete the Qualification for Test Purchase.
Construct validity studies against tests measure critical reasoning and critical thinking show a correlation, but not complete overlap with the LJI-2 as expected. There are also expected links with personality (using the Business-Focused Inventory of Personality) but again, not a complete overlap as expected. Finally, there is no evidence to suggest that the test shows any adverse impact with respect to gender.
