What Is DiSC®?
The DiSC® Profile is a personality assessment that provides insights into natural and adaptable behavior styles in relation to the workplace, leadership, management, and sales. It is the leading personal assessment tool used by more than 40 million people to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication.
Your DiSC® profile is based on a blend of four primary personality or behavioral preferences and their relationship to each other. Originally based on the work of William Mouton Marston, the DiSC® Personality Test has evolved into its 3rd generation, the Everything DiSC® model. Now we are able to generate instant online results that provide you with higher validity, reliability, personalization and usability than previously found in the older 28 and 24 question tests. We us real-time, interactive adaptive testing in conjunction with a 79 question assessment. All of our profiles are researched, developed and validated learning tools from Everything DiSC®, a Wiley Company (previously Inscape Publishing). Learn more about the four DiSC® styles.
