DiSC is an acronym and simply put, the letters D, i, S and C stand for:

D - Dominance
i - Influence
S - Steadiness
C- Conscientiousness

Each letter represents one of the four basic DiSC Styles. Each style is associated with certain behaviors, or observable characteristics.

Dominance - People with the D style tend to be direct, firm or even forceful. They value taking action and getting results and generally are competitive.

Influence - People with the i style tend to be outgoing, enthusiastic and generally are optimistic in nature. Like the D style, they like to take action and are more collaborative than competitive.

Steadiness - People with the S style tend to be patient and accommodating. They enjoy stability and much like the i style tend to be collaborative and enjoy being helpful.

Conscientiousness - People with the C style are usually analytical and reserved. Similar to the S style, they prefer stability, but their priority on accuracy will cause them to challenge assumptions.

Is it Really that Simple?

Yes ... and no. While the DiSC model does accurately describe human behavior using just four styles, it's obvious that complex humans come in more than four flavors. The Everything DiSC Workplace Assessment uses combinations to describe 12 different styles, but the detail goes beyond even that. Since we are all a combination of styles, the detail provided by the circular model (as opposed to the older, graph-style model) goes far deeper.

What's your style? Find out by taking the Everything DiSC Workplace Assessment now. The profile uses the four styles and combinations of styles to describe 12 individual
