Scoring The Individual Report - How To Use DiSC Profiles

Profiles are "self-scoring" - meaning that they don't require interpretation by a specially trained person, and you don't have to wait for the results.

Paper Booklets Versus Online Profiles - Using The DiSC Profile

The paper booklet versions of DiSC Profiles have scratch-off answers (like a lottery ticket), and easy scoring instructions.  The result is a general key that describes different aspects of behavioral styles, and guides the respondent to understanding of their behavioral style.

The online versions of DiSC Profiles have many advantages.  The questionnaire is completed on a secure website, and the website automatically scores the results.  The profile is immediately delivered in Adobe PDF format (easily saved and printed).  The Online DiSC Reports include helpful expanded personal narratives that give the respondent much more information that is specific to their behavioral style.
