what is diSC?


DiSC is a behavioral assessment tool and model that categorizes human behavior into four primary personality styles. The term “DiSC” is an acronym representing the four primary personality styles: Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C). The DiSC model is based on the work of psychologist William Moulton Marston, who developed a theory to understand and describe human behavior in terms of these four fundamental personality traits.

The DiSC model and assessments are widely used in organizational development, leadership training, team building, and communication workshops. They provide individuals and teams with insights into their behavioral tendencies, communication preferences, and approaches to problem-solving. By understanding these behavioral styles, individuals can enhance self-awareness, improve interpersonal communication, and work more effectively in diverse group settings.

why DiSC?

Team Building: Everything DiSC assessments are often used in team-building exercises. Teams can leverage the insights gained from the assessments to enhance collaboration, capitalize on individual strengths, and address potential areas of friction.

Personal Development: Individuals can use Everything DiSC assessments for personal development. By gaining insights into their own behavioral tendencies, strengths, and potential areas for improvement, they can make more informed decisions about their personal and professional growth.

we are not just one style

We are a blend of all styles

Within the Everything DiSC model, individuals are considered to be a blend of all four primary styles: Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C). While people may have a primary style that aligns more closely with one of these four categories, the model recognizes that everyone possesses elements of each style to varying degrees.

In other words, individuals are seen as having a unique combination of these styles, and this combination is represented on a continuum rather than in discrete categories. The assessment results provide a personalized profile that illustrates the individual’s position on the DiSC continuum, showing the intensity of their preferences for each of the four styles.

This emphasis on a blend of styles is one of the strengths of Wiley’s Everything DiSC model. It acknowledges the complexity of human behavior and avoids pigeonholing individuals into rigid categories. It also highlights the versatility and adaptability of individuals in different situations. Understanding one’s own blend of styles and recognizing the diversity of styles in others is a key aspect of using Everything DiSC assessments for personal and professional development, team building, and communication enhancement.
