What does the DiSC instrument measure?

The DiSC instrument from Inscape/Wiley Publishing measures traits that are described by the DiSC model. They are expressed in the form of "styles" summarized as: Dominance (D), Influence (i), Steadiness (S) and Conscientiousness (C). The DiSC instrument has been continuously refined and updated over the last several decades and today, the Everything DiSC Series (Workplace Profile, Management Profile, Sales Profile and Work of Leaders Profile) embodies these DiSC model refinements and represents the latest and most current generation of the DiSC instrument available today.

Where do personality types come from for the DiSC profile?

The DiSC instrument from Inscape/Wiley Publishing is based on the work of William Marston first described in 1928 in his book Emotions of Normal People.  Marston believed that by understanding how our "normal" emotional responses adapt to the demands of of people, situations, and societal expectation, we could evolve into better- integrated people who were more independent and able to realize true happiness in our work lives and personal lives.  What Marston characterized as emotional responses or "primary emotions" are known today as Dominance (D), Influence (i), Steadiness (S) and Conscientiousness (C).

I would like to order a Facilitator Report or Group Culture Report for my group, what is the process?

These are excellent report options to be used with a group of individual DiSC reports for a team. You only need to order one of either or both reports (Facilitator Report or Group Culture Ceport) per group. In addition, you also need to order an individual DiSC report for each team member. If you order either or both of these report options for your group, we will generate and email your Facilitator Report and/or Group Culture Report after your entire group has completed their individual DiSC assessments, or upon your request if your entire team is not finished yet. We will also ask you for a team name or group name that you would like us to display for you on the cover page of your group reports. You can also provide your team name to us during the checkout process and enter it in the ‘Additional Information’ box.
