How Does The DiSC Personality Test Work?

Assessing Behavior

The DiSC Personality Test is a very powerful tool to assess behavior.  It was developed following the theories of William Moulton Marston, psychologist.  Marston suggested that there are four specific personality traits, which are Dominance, Inducement, Submission and Compliance.  Walter Vernon Clarke took this theory and developed it further, using it as a personality assessment tool.

Marston studied the emotions and behavior of normal people and their interaction with their environment.  The research conducted by his contemporaries Jung and Freud had centered on the emotions of abnormal people.  Marston developed the theory to explain model of human behavior and people’s emotional responses to various stimuli; but he did not create an assessment tool.

Adaptive Testing Activated For All Everything DiSC Profiles

This post is a follow-up to our original announcement, on May 30, 2012, about Adaptive Testing.

Beginning July 21, 2012, Everything DiSC assessments will use Adaptive Testing (AT) and a new, more sophisticated scoring algorithm to give participants the most precise DiSC® style assignment possible.

AT is more aligned with contemporary psychological testing—it’s frequently used in aptitude tests, so you may be familiar with the AT assessment method.  With AT, respondents are presented with questions and their responses determine the next questions they’re given.

How is the Everything DiSC® AT assessment better than the 79-item assessment?

In addition to thorough beta testing of the Everything DiSC® AT measurement, we hired two independent agencies to perform multiple rounds of analysis focused on construct validity.  Two of the most well-respected academic assessments in the psychological community were used to establish construct validity of the Everything DiSC AT assessment: NEO PI-R™ and 16PF®.  The agencies also compared the construct validity of the Everything DiSC AT assessment to the Everything DiSC 79-item assessment and the DiSC Classic 28-item assessment.

Everything DiSC Profile Family Continues To Improve!

The foundation of the DiSC Model, as described by William Marston in his book, “The Emotions of Normal People,” was a circle as is represented in today’s Everything DiSC Profiles—the third generation DiSC Profile.   The dot placement and shading in the circular model provides a clear visual of the continuous nature of DiSC in a more simple and intuitive manner that is incredibly straightforward and powerful.

What Is Changing?

Currently the Everything DiSC Profiles ask the participants to respond to 79 items on a 5-point likert scale determining how frequently each item or adjective describes them.  That 79-item assessment will no longer be available after mid-July 2012 when Adaptive Testing (AT) will launch for any Everything DiSC assessment providing a new, more sophisticated scoring algorithm to give participants the most precise DiSC style assignment possible.  Adaptive testing will maximize the precision of the style assignment, participant confidence and personalized feedback.  Based on extensive validation research conducted by two independent agencies that specialize in psychometric testing, the AT measurement is 12% more accurate than the 79-item Everything DiSC profile and 32% more accurate than the DiSC Classic Profile.
