DiSC Profiles are based on the research by Dr. William Marston and are focused on one’s preferred behavioral tendencies. He devised a system to understand and describe human behavioral styles. Dr. Marston based his model on two perceptions: the environment as favorable or unfavorable and the person as more or less powerful than the environment. The DiSC Model divides behavior into four distinct dimensions: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness (DiSC). The DiSC Classic Profile is based on William Moulton Marston’s two-axis, four-dimensional model.
DiSC Classic and other Popular DiSC Profiles and DiSC Assessments are self-administered, self-scoring and self-interpreting instruments designed to help adults understand themselves and others. It is one of the most successful and widely used personal and professional development instruments. DiSC Products are the leading edge approach to improve performance, and deal more effectively with conflict and value differences.
Using the research-based DiSC model, DiSC Classic Profile helps you better understand why you act the way you do. It is not a test, there are no right or wrong answers, no good or bad results, and no behavior style is better than another. DiSC products give people the chance to learn about themselves, value differences in others and map their own ways to improved communication, fewer conflicts, top performance, career growth and personal satisfaction.
DiSC Products can help your group communicate better and focus on issues rather than personality conflicts. One of the greatest benefits of DiSC Products is a common language for talking about feelings, thoughts and behavior in language that is objective and nonjudgmental—describing what is, not what should be. Group understanding fosters cooperation, acceptance and trust—keys to top performance.
Versions of DiSC Products are available in Paper and Online Web-based (online via EPIC) forms; in word or phrase input formats; and for youth and adults separately.
