Everything DiSC Assessment

The Model: D-i-S-C

Everything DiSC gives people a quick and intuitive way to understand themselves and others using DiSC—a simple yet powerful model that describes four basic behavioral styles: D, i, S, and C.


Everyone is a blend of all four DiSC styles—usually, one, two, or even three styles stand out. Each person has a unique behavioral profile with different styles and priorities—no one style is better or worse than the next. We believe that these differences in style can be extremely valuable. Once you assess these differences and harness their value, better workplace communication AND healthier organizations become possible.

How DiSC Works:

A dot’s distance from the edge of the circle shows how naturally inclined a person is to encompass the characteristics of their DiSC style.

A dot positioned toward the edge of the circle indicates a strong inclination toward the characteristics of the style. A dot located between the edge and the center of the circle indicates a moderate inclination. Finally, a dot positioned close to the center of the circle indicates a slight inclination.

For example, someone whose dot placement is on the fringe of the DC portion of the map will likely strongly identify with and present most if not all the characteristics associated with the DC style—independent, difficult to read, skeptical—whereas someone whose DC dot placement is closer to the center of the map will only identify with and express some of these characteristics.

It is important to remember that a dot in the center of the circle is no better than one on the edge and vice versa.

How it Works:

Psychological instruments are used to measure abstract qualities that we can’t touch or see. These are characteristics like intelligence, extroversion, or honesty. So how do we know whether such tools are providing accurate information or just generating haphazard feedback that sounds believable?

Simply put, if an instrument is useful and accurate, it should meet a variety of different standards that have been established by the scientific community. Validation is the process through which researchers assess the quality of a psychological instrument by testing the tool against these different standards.

Validation asks two fundamental questions:

  • How reliable is the tool? That is, researchers ask if an instrument measures consistently and dependably. If the results contain a lot of random variation, it is deemed less reliable.
  • How valid is the tool? That is, researchers ask if an instrument measures accurately.  The more a tool measures what it proposes to measure, the more valid the tool is.

With nearly 50 years of assessment data and over 10 million individuals assessed, you can feel confident that our assessment meets the highest levels of validity and reliability.

Why it’s Valuable:

Apply a framework for understanding behavioral tendencies

Learners have a new way to organize and think about their own behavior as well as that of others. DiSC can illuminate learners’ patterns to help predict and navigate relationships more effectively.

Use as a conversation catalyst to get to know, adapt to, and value others

DiSC can be used as a jumping-off point to build relationships and maximize each interaction. It fosters empathy for others, knowing that the powerful insights learned about oneself are just as true and powerful for others—regardless of how different they might be from your own.

Instill a common language in an organization

DiSC gives a common language to complex, sometimes sensitive topics. It’s simple without being simplistic and offers pragmatic, actionable ways to better connect and collaborate.
