The DiSC is more of a behavioral assessment rather than personality assessment. It provides you with a better understanding of your interpersonal communication style and how you react in specific team, management, and leadership situations.
There are four dimensions – Dominance, Influence, Conscientiousness, and Steadiness. Each dimension is divided into five traits. After you take the assessment, you will have a dot placed on the DiSC circle. Everyone is a blend of all four dimensions; however, people tend to lean strongly into one or two. The dot describes where you are on this continuum. No dimension is better than the other. Each comes with its own motivators and stressors, strengths and weaknesses. The more you know about yourself, the more effective you will be in the workplace and in life.
- Dominance – direct, results-oriented, firm, strong-willed, forceful
- Influence – outgoing, enthusiastic, optimistic, high-spirited, lively
- Conscientiousness – analytical, reserved, precise, private, systematic
- Steadiness – even-tempered, accommodating, patient, humble, tactful
