What is a DISC Assessment?
We are often asked, “What is a DISC Assessment?, How do I pass a DISC Assessment?, or Can I fail a DISC Assessment?” A DISC Assessment is not a test, so it is impossible to fail. When taking a DISC assessment it is important to relax and answer the questions openly and honestly. So what does a DISC assessment measure?
DISC assessments measure a person’s different levels of each of the four DISC Factors:
Your need for control and your source of ambition. Whenever you are feeling self-motivated, you are using your ‘D’ factor.
Your need for communication and your source of persuasion. Whenever you are feeling talkative, you are using your ‘I’ factor.
Your need for planning and your source of thoughtfulness. When you are being strategic or go out of your way to help someone, you are using your ‘S’ factor.
Your need for structure and your source of organization. When you become extremely focused on completing your tasks, you are using your ‘C’ factor.
Once your DISC assessment is completed, you will be able to see your levels of each of the four factors in a bar graph and pie chart, as well as be able to download your personalized DISC Report.

Is DISC a personality test?
People call a DISC Assessment a personality assessment. Which is incorrect. Your personality isn’t something you can change. A DISC assessment is a behavior assessment.

It is the result of flexing your behavior over time. DISC reveals your tendencies. This gives you an awareness about how you behave. It is important to learn how to behave. Sometimes it is important to speak up. Other times it is important to listen. The goal is to figure out what is needed. If you don’t naturally behave one way. You may need to flex your DISC factors.
