Overview of DISC

Principles of DiSC

All DISC styles and priorities are equally valuable.  

Everyone is a blend of all four styles.

Your work style is also influenced by other factors such as life experiences, education, and maturity.

Understanding yourself better is the first step to becoming more effective when working or interacting with others.

Learning about other people’s DiSC styles can help you understand their priorities and how they may differ from your own.

You can improve the quality of your home or workplace by using DiSC to build more effective relationships.

DISC is a very simple—and memorable—model made up of four basic styles: D, i, S, and C.

Everyone is a blend of all four DISC styles—usually one, two, or even three styles stand out. Unlike simple personality tests, there is no perfect DISC style. Since each person has a unique behavioral profile, people are walking around all over the world with different styles and priorities. We believe that these differences are extremely valuable. Once you assess these differences and harness their value, you’ll have better workplace communication AND healthier organizations. 

Seems simple, right? It is. But it’s not simplistic. Here’s why:


DISC has  been researched and analyzed over 40 years—and the DiSC® Classic Paper Profile was the first DiSC assessment ever. By the way, you know it’s the EverythingDiSC® by the signature lower-cased “i” in DiSC.


As technology has evolved, DISC has too. The newer online DiSC assessments use the most advanced assessment method (adaptive testing) and sophisticated algorithms to quickly analyze a person’s responses and provide the most personalized DiSC feedback possible. And it only takes about 15 minutes to complete.

All EverythingDiSC personality assessments are application-focused, so the feedback is presented to you as a leader, manager, individual contributor, or sales person.

EverythingDiSC solutions are frequently used as stand-alone tools, but are also paired with other well-known personality tests like Myers Briggs (MBTI) and Caliper. 

Interpersonal conflict among colleagues is common. Even an entire department can become dysfunctional because a few key players simply can’t get along. Disruptive conflicts like these play out in all types of organizations, every day. But they don’t have to. When employees understand themselves, as well as others—what motivates them, what stresses them out, what drives them to achieve their goals—there’s less conflict, more collaboration, better working relationships, and healthier workplaces. That’s where the Everything DiSC can help. 

Everything DiSC® is a personality assessment tool that measures preferences and tendencies that shape the workplace experience. Based on an individual’s assessment data, a customized report provides a wealth of information about his or her style.

The DiSC Profile is based on over 40 years of research and now has even higher validity and reliability than earlier versions. It is recommended to improve communication in the workplace, improve leadership skills, develop management styles and develop selling skills.
