Learn your Style; Improve your Self-Awareness

Free Online DISC Test

Get a free DISC profile!

The DISC self-assessment tool is designed to help you learn more about yourself and those around you.

When you learn your DISC style, you will gain insights into the way that you naturally communicate. This can help explain why you might connect with certain people more easily over others. As you learn more about your DISC style, it will improve your self-awareness. With this improvement, you can adapt how you communicate to meet the behavioral needs of those around you.

The DISC Personality Type model is most effective when teams, individuals, and organizations use the language of DISC to help explain their needs and motivations. It allows organizations to become more open and inclusive and helps individuals feel more connected.

When you complete this free DISC assessment, you will have a chance to learn:

  1. Your DISC Style
  2. The DISC Model and How to work with the other DISC Styles

This free DISC profile won’t provide you with everything you would receive when you purchase the complete DISC Basic profile. However, it’s a great way to sample how the tool works or to start the journey of learning more about yourself.

Once you complete the assessment, you will have the opportunity to purchase the full report or to purchase a coaching session with a certified DISC professional.

What are the four DISC Personality Styles?

When DISC was theorized in 1928 by William Moulton Marston, he recognized that you could categorize people into four different types or styles. Marston didn’t see people stuck inside of these types. Instead, he wrote in his book The Emotions of Normal People that he saw people as a color wheel with one prominent color that blended into the other three colors.

Marston’s theory has gone through many language changes since it’s inception. However, the four unique styles remain the foundation of the DISC Assessment Profile that we offer today: 

Dominance

The D Personality Type stands for Dominance.

Individuals with this style seek to control their future and accomplish any challenge in front of them. Don’t mistake their result-oriented attitude for a lack of empathy. They may lose sight of the more relationship-oriented needs of the other styles, but they do still care for others.

Influence

The I Personality Type stands for influence.

Often, you can identify these individuals because they are friendly and talkative. Individuals with this style may come across as flighty or flaky; however, they are the glue that holds teams together. 

Learn about the I Style –>

DISC Coach - S Personality Type
DISC Coach - S Personality Type

Steadiness

Calm and collected. The S Style maintains a level of stability that gives them their style’s name: Steadiness. When times are tough, you can depend on individuals with this style to listen and offer support.

Conscientious

The C Personality Type stands for Conscientious. Many people mistake this style as being shy. While they are often reserved – they aren’t afraid to speak their mind, they are waiting for the opportunity to display their accuracy and knowledge of a subject, and they will maintain a position when they know they are right.

How Does DISC Compare to Other Personality Assessments?

The power of DISC is that it offers a simple model without being simplistic.

DISC doesn’t aim to put someone into a box of one of the 12 Personality Types. Instead, the goal is to use the descriptions from the model to understand someone’s perspective. Through DISC, you can gain a clearer picture of someone’s motivations. This more precise picture makes it easier to connect and work with someone you might have had difficulty working with before.

Personality assessments are becoming more common to help professional organizations improve communication and interpersonal relationships.

DISC is one of the longest-studied and used assessments, and we wanted to outline how it compares to other popular assessments available to help improve interpersonal relationships and communication.

DISC and the Big 5 Personality Traits

In the early 2000s, researchers from a number of academic institutions wanted to develop a model that would capture the most common personality features. The model they developed was called the Five-Factor Model (or the Big 5 Personality Traits). 

DISC measures the following comparable traits to the Big Five Personality assessment:

While these traits showed a high correlation with these Big Five Traits, it’s important to note that the descriptions offered by each tool are still unique and highlight different aspects of personality.

DISC and 16 Personalities / Myers-Briggs Types

The Myers-Briggs and the 16 Personalities assessment is based on the work of Carl Jung’s psychological types. While separate assessments with different research and ownership, both assessments measure a person based on a set of individual scales which produces 16 different personality types (16 Personalities measures 5 scales, MBTI measures 4 scales).

Below are the DISC Personality Types that show a strong correlation with the Myers-Briggs scale:

  • Introverted / Extroverted Scale = C Personality Type / I Personality Type
  • Thinking / Feeling Scale = D Personality Type / C Personality Type & I Personality Type / S Personality Type
