DiSC Assessment



DiSC is a personal assessment tool used to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity in the workplace.

My Take

I have completed many different personality and behavior assessments over the course of my career. I have taken several of them more than once, such as the MBTI Assessment and DiSC Assessment.

I am highlighting my DiSC Assessment (see my Crystal Profile) because I have always found this to be the most accurate assessment of my personality.

And not just from the perspective of the assessment, but also artificial intelligence; Crystal's personality profiles are based on analysis of millions of public data points obtained from user and peer reviews, LinkedIn accounts, Google, Facebook pages and blog posts.

DiSC Styles

DiSC is an acronym that stands for the four main personality profiles described in the DiSC model: (D)ominance, (i)nfluence, (S)teadiness and (C)onscientiousness.

Dominance: People with D personalities tend to be confident and place an emphasis on accomplishing bottom-line results.

Influence: People with i personalities tend to be more open and place an emphasis on relationships and influencing or persuading others.

Supporter: People with S personalities tend to be dependable and place the emphasis on cooperation and sincerity.

Compliance: People with C personalities tend to place the emphasis on quality, accuracy, expertise, and competency.
