What is DISC?

DISC is a self-assessment that measures how an individual prefers to interact with others. DISC creates a common language and a self-awareness to better understand ourselves and others. The online DISC questionnaire takes only 10 minutes to complete. The assessment reports can be customized for all levels of the organization.

Organizations and facilitators choose the DISC assessment because it is easy to administer, user-friendly and a powerful tool in a wide range of applications.

The DISC model divides people into four main behavioral styles. Individuals are identified as either People-oriented or Task-oriented. They are further distinguished as Reserved or Active. The resulting behavioral styles are called:

Who created DISC?

No one owns DISC. The DISC model is in public domain. It is based on the work of Carl Gustav Jung who created a groundbreaking model for human behavior in his 1921 book, Psychological Types. Dr. Jung recognized that people can be divided into four main styles. In 1928, William Moulton Marston published a book, Emotions of Normal People. He built upon Jung’s work and named the four main behavioral styles, D, I, S and C.

A few organizations have created their proprietary assessments based on the foundations of Dr. Jung’s and Dr. Marston’s work.
