The DiSC Dimensions of Behavior Model stresses that no Dimension of Behavior or DiSC Classic Profile Pattern is better than any other and that all individuals use all four Dimensions of Behavior in varying degrees. DiSC Profiles offer a self-assessment of an individual’s own behavioral style in a specific environment called a response focus.
This means that an individual is assessing his or her behavioral style with a specific focus like work, a relationship, or social situation. The instrument is based on the respondent’s own perception of themselves without feedback from others. This self-report format has gained wide acceptance because of its face validity.
The instrument provides them with feedback that describes their behavioral style in their selected focus. It is more difficult to say, “This is not me,” when the individual is the only one who has responded to the 28 forced-choice items, it is easier to reject the results when they are based on input from others. DiSC Classic Profile is self-scoring and provides immediate feedback.
Many users say they find the Online DiSC Classic 2.0 Profile to be better packaged, more user-friendly, and more easily presented than other learning tools because of its self-scoring format, immediately usable interpretation, and Classical Profile Pattern interpretive information.
