By using DISC, people can better understand themselves and adapt their behaviours with others, within a work team, a leadership position, or any other everyday relationship.
DISC is a behaviour assessment tool and originally was an acronym for Dominance, Inducement, Submission and Compliance, four different behavioural traits. It is based on the DISC theory of psychologist William Marston. This DISC profile theory was further developed into the behavioural assessment tool known today, by industrial psychologist Walter Clarke.
Marston was a lawyer and a psychologist. One of his claims to fame is the creation of the character Wonder Woman. He also contributed to the first polygraph test and created the DISC theory which analyses a combination of characteristics of emotions and behaviour of normal people. He wrote a book in 1928 called Emotions of Normal People, and it was here that he discussed DISC and how people show their emotions through four behaviour types, namely Dominance (D), Inducement (I), Submission (S), and Compliance (C).
He hypothesised that there are two facets that influence people's emotional behaviour. The first is whether a person views his environment as favourable or unfavourable. The second is whether a person perceives himself as having control or lack of control over his environment. His work proved to be revolutionary and is the foundation of the DISC assessments that are used today.
Based on Marston's theory of human behaviour the DISC personality profile assessment, it was Walter Clarke, an industrial psychologist, who, in 1954 constructed the DISC assessment using Marston's theory and DISC model. He did this by creating a checklist of adjectives on which he asked people to indicate those that were accurate descriptors of themselves. The assessment was intended for use in businesses to assist them in choosing qualified employees.
Since then many versions of the DISC models and assessments have been generated. Today DISC is accepted to stand for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness, a variation on Marston's original analysis.
The DISC personality profile assessment is predominantly a tool to get to know oneself and others. It helps people gain insight into how people work and what makes them tick. Many companies use the DISC profile assessment as a way of placing their employees in the best position or job possible to get best job-fit and maximise the performance and productivity of employees.

Talent Tools' DISC individual behavioural analysis results are computer generated from the results of an online assessment. The assessment is actually a scientifically validated instrument, which has been used by thousands of organisations world wide. A person takes Talent Tools' online questionnaire, which only takes around ten minutes to complete, answering 24 questions about themselves, based on their behavioural preferences. The questionnaire pushes the individual to choose two of four options: a word that describes them best, from the options, as "most like" and once as "least like" me.
To achieve the most valid outcome possible, Talent Tools offers the tests in over 60 different languages. This flexibility enables most people to take the DISC questionnaire in their most natural language. The system is so precise in its analytics that it does make a difference if the incorrect language is chosen.
DISC stands for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. If a person scores higher in the Dominance section, it means he or she places emphasis on accomplishing results, the bottom line and is someone very confident. They can be blunt, but they can also see the big picture, they get straight to the point, and they like to accept challenges.
Influence stands for those who naturally influence others; they can be very persuasive when they want to be. Those high on Influence have an openness about them and believe in relationships. Nature's networkers and connectors. They like to collaborate, they are optimistic. They do not like being ignored, but they are enthusiastic about the job at hand.
If an individual scores highest on Steadiness, then this is the type of person who emphasizes cooperation, sincerity and dependability. They do not like to be rushed but they have a very calm approach, a calm manner and they deal in supportive actions towards the other members of their team. Nature's nurturers.
Conscientiousness stands for people who emphasize quality and accuracy, expertise and competency. They can work on their own, and on their own initiative. Indeed they enjoy autonomy. They have objective reasoning; they pay attention to detail. However they might seem to lack confidence, and they carry a fear of being wrong.
Dominance and Influence are known as the active styles while Steadiness and Conscientiousness are known as the passive styles. Dominant and Conscientious people are task-oriented. Influential and Steady people are known to be people-oriented.
Talent Tools highly recommends the Extended DISC Behavioural Analysis assessment tool as it has been developed and designed specifically for the workplace environment. The extended DISC profile report provides user-friendly information that changes and enhances the way people talk and interact with each other at work.
For individuals, understanding your own extended DISC behavioural style will advance your success both in and out of the workplace.
The Extended DISC system was developed as a result of extensive research on the many varieties of human behaviour and how those behaviours could be more readily understood using DISC theory.
Extended DISC is the model that has a strong focal point on using it for the professional development of people. Both the instrument questionnaire and the computerised statistical analysis of this system have been rigorously and independently tested, with the results proving that it is a valid and reliable system.
DISC reports tell respondents the DISC style(s) that is natural for them, which in return provides them with a starting point efficaciously to adjust their behaviour, when and where appropriate. Individuals have the ability to use DISC concepts to improve interaction depending on with whom they are interacting and the context of the situation.
Your Extended DISC assessment provides information on your natural strengths, weaknesses, what motivates you, and what makes you slump. Effective performance improvement is achieved once the natural DISC style is identified and behaviours modified. Then we can begin to understand how we and others react to being under pressure, and how our behaviours are perceived by our peers.
Talent Tools believes their assessments are the best because of the years of research built into creating a tool that can truly measure and report on innate styles. While there may be other assessments out there that measure one's conscious behavioural styles, Talent Tools' trusts only Extended DISC to identify and report on your unconscious natural style, which will change very little over your lifetime. Identifying who you truly are.
The 24 questions might seem independent of each other, but under the surface, they are interconnected in a complex and relational way. Differing from simple DISC tests, the Extended DISC system is constructed in a way where it will not generate a result if it cannot clearly identify the pattern of at least one behavioural trait. That means if the person doing the questionnaire tries to "over-think" their questions or is lacking in focus or rushes through the list then an invalid outcome will result. This professional DISC system will not provide information that does not meet its built in validity and reliability standards.
The results of the questionnaire are instant, and there is an option to send copies of the report to others within the respondent's organisation. Clients can also customise their FinxS generated Extended DISC reports. The FinxS Extended DISC Reporting System enables the aesthetics of the assessment report to be customised in the form of colours, pictures, logos. The content can be changed to suit specific job roles, competencies etc. Talent Tools offer a large library of individual assessments, they also offer teamwork, work-pair, department and organisational assessments too. Any assessment can be modified to become either a short report or a comprehensive one.
The standardised reports generated by the Extended DISC Online System (EDOS) are easy to understand and provide excellent information and guidance for respondents. EDOS reports are easy to order, quickly received and very cost effective.
