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.

Everything DiSC Profile Supplement for Facilitators


These reports empower you with the insights that help individuals understand their results that they receive in the profiles.  The whole catalyst for the development of this tool was really to help people investigate DiSC style assignments that were a little confusing, a little vague or simply just to provide more information.  The most frequent situation is when the dot is close to the center of the circle.  This supplement can help you investigate why that happened.

The Everything DiSC Profile Supplement for Facilitator automatically accompanies the respective Everything DiSC Profile and therefore does not incur additional EPIC credits to generate.  It provides the behind the EPIC screen look of how a participant’s profile results were determined and what other factors might influence their style.  This is a one-page report that provides more detailed data about a respondent’s DiSC style assignment and dot placement, scores for eight DiSC scales and assessment items the respondent rated highly that aren’t typical for their style to help uncover the nuances of their style.

Everything DiSC Management Profile Program Updates


On July 21, 2012 Everything DiSC Profiles began using Adaptive Testing (AT) and a new, more sophisticated scoring algorithm to give participants the most precise DiSC style assignment possible. The adaptive testing (AT) assessment data is currently being used in all Everything DiSC Profiles to provide even more precise dot placement on the respondent’s Everything DiSC map. All of the Everything DiSC Profiles will change gradually over time to incorporate additional data and feedback. The new data will be incorporated into not just dot placement, but also into assigning additional shading and priorities on the Everything DiSC map when appropriate. Respondents will be able to see all of their priorities reflected in their feedback, even if they prioritize things that aren’t usual for their styles.

Now we’re ready to launch the AT updates to the Everything DiSC Management Profile to provide participants with the benefits of adaptive testing and align with the improvements made to the Everything DiSC Workplace and Everything DiSC Work of Leaders programs.

Adaptive testing produces more precise results, which in turn provides a better experience for the user. The biggest benefit of adaptive testing is a more precise measurement. Increased personalization based on this greater precision and accuracy leads to a more accurate profile and more satisfied participants. When the Everything DiSC Management Profile is updated on October 31, 2013, respondents will be able to see all of their priorities reflected in their feedback.

Understanding and Improving Interpersonal Effectiveness

What Is Interpersonal Effectiveness?

Interpersonal effectiveness is hugely important in professional and personal lives. But what exactly is meant by the term “interpersonal effectiveness”? It is one of those buzzwords that you will hear frequently at job interviews and we often feel compelled to say that our interpersonal effectiveness is really high, even if we don’t necessarily know what it means. The definition of Interpersonal Effectiveness is:

“Interpersonal effectiveness is a skill that helps you ask for what you want in a situation, keep good relationships, and maintain self-respect. However, this is also a skill which may or may not come naturally to us and, therefore, might have to be taught or learned. The status of our relationships is directly linked to our emotions and our mood, so maintaining healthy relationships is essential to being emotionally healthy overall.”
Quoted from Southeast Psyche by Becky Thomson
