Q.  What does the Everything DiSC instrument measure?

A.  In short, it measures preferences and tendencies.  Everything DiSC is not a test, it's a personality assessment. This research-validated model helps you understand yourself and others, saving you time, energy, and money. Better employee communication means efficiency on both individual and company levels.

DiSC is a very simple 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. (Who doesn’t want that?!)

Q.  Where do the personality types come from in the Everything DiSC assessment?

A.  The Everything DiSC instrument is based on the work of William Marston first described in 1928 in his book Emotions of Normal People.  Marston believed that by understanding how our "normal" emotional responses adapt to the demands of people, situations, and societal expectation, we could evolve into better- integrated people who were more independent and able to realize true happiness in our work lives and personal lives.  What Marston characterized as emotional responses or "primary emotions" are known today as Dominance (D), Influence (i), Steadiness (S) and Conscientiousness (C). 

Wiley has been researching and analyzing DiSC for over 40 years—in fact, our DiSC® Classic Paper Profile was the first DiSC assessment EVER! (You’ll always know it’s our DiSC by our signature lower-cased “i” in DiSC.)

As technology has evolved, DiSC has too. Our 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.

Q.  How can an Everything DiSC personality assessment help me understand myself and others better?

A.  Have you ever wondered why some people just don’t get you? Or ever thought “I cannot even begin to know what my boss needs—even when I ask him or her, I still don’t know.”

When you receive your report, you will learn about many ways to interact with others, approach situations, and make decisions.  As you learn more about yourself, you will learn more about the preferences of your friends, family, and co-workers, which will improve your relationships.  Everything DiSC:

  • Provides a common language to help teams understand one another and work better together
  • Acts as a springboard for conversation and team building
  • Improves employee and workplace communication
  • Helps you to understand people who aren’t like you…or are too much like you
  • Reduces conflict and avoids misunderstandings
