About DISC


DISC measures your personality and behavioral style. It does not measure intelligence, aptitude, mental health or values. It describes human behavior in various situations, for example how you respond to challenges (Dominance); how you influence others (Influence); your preferred pace, i.e. decisive, need time to process (Steadiness); and how you respond to rules and procedures (Conscientiousness).


The goal of DISC is to help users build and maximize productive relationships. Users don’t need to change their personality traits; they need to recognize what drives and motivates themselves and others and determine the best ways to effectively interact with them.
