The DISC Personality System has become known as “The International Language of Behavior.” With this tool, you will learn how you and other people are motivated differently, how everyone communicates differently, how we all view tasks and relationships differently, and how our personality affects every aspect of our life.
The study of human behavior goes back thousands of years. In 444 BC, Empodecles and the ancients believed that personality was tied to the elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. In 400 BC, it was Hippocrates who said that it wasn’t external elements that influence personality but rather our internal fluids using the terms Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, and Melancholy to describe the four dominant personality styles. In the modern era, Carl Jung, 1921, described four psychological types: Thinking, Feeling, Sensation, and Intuition, and in 1926, in his book, the Emotions of Normal People, William Marston began using D, I, S, and C to describe personality styles. There are three contributing factors to personality: Heredity, Role Model (up to the agent of 12), and Experiences (after the age of 8). Your personality style and behaviors can change over time and vary depending on the environment and circumstances.
Today, human resource trainers and other professionals are asked to provide solutions for hard-to-solve situations. That’s because whenever people come together around a common goal, whether improving sales or choosing where the family will vacation, misunderstanding and conflict inevitably arise. On the job, that can mean a decrease in productivity and sales. At home, misunderstanding can lead to stress and broken relationships.
The information in the DISC Behavioral Analysis report can be applied at work to empower others for greater productivity, assist in forming self-directed work teams, and increase your effectiveness as a team member or business builder. Other uses include staff recruitment, self-improvement, and team building. It is also used at several colleges and universities at undergraduate and graduate levels. Our goal is to deploy this powerful instrument of tremendous discovery and enlightenment to help you in every facet of your life and help you in your journey to success.
