Why Use DISC Profiling?
With DISC profiling, you will not only gain deeper understanding of how you are perceived by others, but it also gives you a language to discuss your behaviour, communication, style of working and reactions to other people as well. It is the ultimate ‘mirror on the wall’ that explains what everyone else can see: the surface level of who you are – your behaviour.
DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, Compliance) is a complex model made simple by years of research and practice. It identifies behavioural styles that can open your eyes to improving your interactions with others.
Moreover, DISC profiling is used by an estimated 75% of the Fortune 500 because of what it delivers. It continues to be the most popular tool of choice for professional development as well as recruitment and selection.

What is DISC Theory?
William Moulton Marston developed the theory behind the DISC profile. It was first used to categorise behaviour and emotions. Years later, the theory was shaped into the assessment that is used today.
Simply stated, DISC profiling measures how we behave and communicate. One of the most powerful things about DISC profiling is the fact that people identify with the report almost immediately! People instantly recognise themselves in the profile. The real value comes from using this information to understand how to adapt to be more effective.
This model has four factors based on two intersecting axes. The vertical axis ranges from “task/goal” focused behaviours to “people/relationship” focused behaviours. The horizontal axis ranges from “reserved” (or “ask/listen”) behaviours to “outgoing” (or “tell/talk”) behaviours. With these two intersecting axis, four quadrants emerge:
Dominance (D) – How we deal with problems and challenges.
Influence (I) – How we deal with people and contacts.
Steadiness (S) – How we deal with the pace and consistency of the environment.
Compliance (C) – How we deal with procedures and constraints.
We all have some degree of each of the four behavioural styles (i.e. we are not just one type/style). Whether an individual measures “high” or “low” on the D, I, S or C spectrum, the behaviours are still visible and recognisable on the surface. Most people have two dominant styles; however any combination is possible.
Remember: DISC is NOT a Personality Test!
While this assessment can help people better understand themselves, it is important to note that the DISC profile only looks at a small component of personality. Its scope only involves the behaviour, that is, the four common ways that people tend to act and communicate, which has been validated by more than 50 years of research.
Calling the DISC profile a ‘personality test’ can be misleading as there is a great deal to an individual’s personality beyond the scope of this system, and the term ‘test’ implies you will pass or fail, which is not the case with the DISC profile.
