A Roadmap To Success.
Imagine you had a roadmap for understanding someone you barely know and could accurately predict how they would respond in any situation at work or in life. Imagine you could understand yourself equally as well.
The DiSC Personality Profile Assessment tool is an instrument to give you those insights. This evaluation is designed to identify the DiSC personality types and then apply that wealth of information to everyday living. There are many ways to use the DiSC Personality Assessment with the Everything DiSC Profile Assessment being the most powerful, up to date and most accurate version of DiSC yet. Continue reading
Do You Know What Kind of Personality You Have?
And do you know all of the positive and negative traits associated with your personality type?
If you’ve ever taken a DiSC Assessment, you might. DiSC personality tests are great for a number of reasons. For one, they can help employers know their employees better.
They can also help you understand yourself to a greater extent. We covered two personality types in the previous post, covering the traits of Dominance and influence. Learn about the last two types right here…
DiSC Isn’t Some Meaningless Word.
In terms of personality tests and assessments, DiSC stands for Dominance, influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious.
Each of the letters represented in the DiSC acronym have a number of specific traits that help to define certain personality types. If you’re wondering what some of those are, here is a short assessment of each personality in the DiSC system:
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.
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.
