The Assessment and Report
The assessment provides 28-forced choice questions which the user must answer each question. Once the questions are all answered, the assessment is automatically scored and the respondent’s profile is created.
Thanks to work of Dr. John Geir, who developed the original assessment, and through the continued refinement over the years by Carlson Learning, Inscape Publishing, and John Wiley & Sons, DiSC Classic 2.0 provides three levels of interpretation within the assessment. In addition to the graph, which provide the person’s primary and secondary styles, the profile includes an intensity index and a Classical Style Pattern assignment. There are 15 classical styles which were developed from studying thousands of people who have taken the assessment. Classical Patterns are based on a person’s specific graph placements for each D, i, S, and C style.
Understanding your DiSC personality style and the DiSC Styles of others provides insight that can improve rapport, communication, team effectiveness, customer service, sales, and also reduce interpersonal conflict.
