So what is DISC?

The DISC assessment is a non-judgmental tool used to discuss people’s behavioral differences. By taking part, you’ll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behavior. You’ll also receive tips related to working with people of other styles.

DISC profiles help you and your team:

  • Increase your knowledge of how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems
  • Improve working relationships by recognizing the communication needs of team members
  • Facilitate better teamwork and teach productive conflict
  • Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
  • Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members

DISC measures your personality and behavioral style. It does not measure intelligence, aptitude, mental health or values. DISC profiles describe human behavior in various situations.

What does DISC stand for?

The term DISC is an acronym that represents the 4 known personality types. These are Dominant, Influencer, Steady and Compliant. Below is a table demonstrating what each represents:

How do i find my personality type?

You will have to complete a questionnaire which only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete and includes approximately 80 items. It uses a rating scale (strongly disagree to strongly agree) and you will be responding to a phrase instead of a single word or questions.

There is no time limit for completing the questionnaire, making it possible for people requiring more time to complete the assessment without need of any special adaption or modification.
