Know your self, help yourself. Good thinking gets you good things. Better thinking gets you a better life. Self esteem, better performance, better communication, better relationships, more happiness. More time, more money, more fun.
We can measure your thinking. Axiology, the science of making value decisions, uses a straightforward,
scientifically validated (for over 5 decades) instrument that has
a 95% correlation to the 500 plus item MMPI. It cuts through
behaviors, attitudes, emotions, and beliefs directly to the very thinking beneath it all. No other widely used instrument, not MBTI, DISC, MAPP, nor Enneagram, can do that - they just don't have the scientific
basis behind Axiology.
Robert S. Hartman, Ph.D., developed the first major breakthrough in accurate measurement of thought processes that influence human behavior. Using the formal, deductive science of Axiology, the science of how we think, Dr. Hartman’s revolutionary accomplishment changed our capacity to understand and quantifiably measure critical thought processes – heretofore believed to be intangible. These measurements provide a clear and concise view of the thoughts that can support or sabotage your efforts.

The word 'axiology', derived from two Greek roots 'axios' (worth or value) and 'logos' (logic or theory), means the theory of value. Axiology is the science of how humans value and make value judgments. To value is to think, to assign meaning and determine the richness of properties. These concepts are usually considered highly subjective and, therefore, have meaning and understanding only to the individual who holds those values.
The development of the formal science of axiology makes possible the objective measurement of value - how humans think - as accurately as a thermometer measures the temperature.
The science of value originated with early Greek philosophers and culminated in the work of Dr. Hartman. In a discovery comparable to those of Galileo, Newton, and Einstein, Dr. Hartman discovered the principles that order and structure value judgments. From these principles, Dr. Hartman constructed a value mathematics that can be used to objectively measure our capacity to make good value decisions. Unlike all other instruments, this structure allows us to understand 'how' a person thinks and perceives -- not what they think, but how they think. In other words, value science tells us what we pay attention to, what is important to us, and how our value or thought biases influence our decisions and actions. Natural science explains human behavior. Axiology explains and measures the thinking that forms the foundation for, and leads to, behavior. Even more important, the knowledge axiology provides is objective, independent of any one observer, and accurate regardless of race, religion, gender, or socioeconomic condition.
One of Dr. Hartman's greatest gifts to the world is the Hartman Value Profile Instrument. It consists of 2 sets of 18 axiological statements or phrases (words) that the subject is asked to rank order. Each word or phrase has been scientifically validated to represent one level of the eighteen levels in the value mathematics hierarchy of value. The individual uniqueness of every human being is evidenced by the fact that there are 6.4 quadrillion possible permutations of these rankings! The Hartman Value Profile Instrument and value mathematics has been subjected to decades of research and numerous scientific validation studies.
Dr. Hartman identified six very different and unique dimensions of thought that clearly identify strengths and challenges, the extent of each, and the potential risks of each.
The Hartman Value Profile Instrument revolutionizes the process of measuring and understanding your thought patterns, why you perceive a situation as you do, what access you have to your natural talents, and ultimately explains the source of your behavior.
Robert S. Hartman, Ph.D.
Dr. Hartman was born in Berlin, Germany in 1910. He grew up there through WWI and into the early years of WWII. As a schoolboy, he was required to repeat the loyalty oath everyday: "I was born to die for Germany." Even at a very early age Hartman knew that there was something fundamentally wrong with that idea, which ultimately set the stage for his life's work.
Early in his career he was a practicing judge in Germany during the rise of the Third Reich. As he became a witness to the atrocities against the people of Germany he began to speak out against them. He believed in the infinite value of a human life and that the state had a moral obligation to keep violent hands off that life. War, he thought, was madness. His rejection of all violent creeds, whether of Communism, Nazism, or Fascism, which he expressed in speeches and articles, brought him into conflict with the Nazi party and forced him to leave Germany to escape imprisonment.
Following his attendance at the German College of Political Science, he moved on to the University of Paris, the London School of Economics, and Berlin University, where he received the LL.B. in 1932. Ultimately, in 1941, he came to the United States. Over the years, he earned Ph.D.'s in Mathematics, Philosophy and Law. He held more than fifty lectureships in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and Europe . He was a research professor of philosophy at the University of Tennessee from 1968 until his death in 1973.
With what he had witnessed in Germany, Dr. Hartman dedicated his life to answering the question, "What is good?" - and to answer the question in such a way that "good" could be organized to help preserve and enhance the value of human life. His work in Axiology (the science of human value systems and how humans think) resulted in the creation of the Hartman Value Profile Instrument that provides a scientific way to deductively measure the thought processes that influence attitude, behavior, personality, beliefs, and emotions; which ultimately become actions and results. The Hartman Value Profile Instrument has been subjected to many decades of research and more than 20 scientific validation studies.
As the author of more than ten books, over 100 articles, and translator of six books, he acquired a worldwide reputation. He was much loved by his many friends, students, and colleagues. Most would agree with the sentiment expressed by one of them: "I have never known a more comprehensive, brilliant, creative mind; or a more enthusiastic, eloquent teacher." With a deep understanding of Philosophy and a genius for Mathematics he earned praise and esteem in the international community and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1972.
