Understanding DiSC

DiSC® profile analysis is a tool that is used to assess behavior. The letters D-i-S-C represent the personality traits, behavioral traits or energy factors that characterize the four sides that together make up our entire personality. We have more or less of every behavior in us.

DiSC helps us recognize the human differences and helps understand the people in our workplace and communicate with them.

The teory behind DiSC

We are working with two dimensions of human behavior. Although DiSC describes four behavioral styles, the model at its core is two-dimensional. The two dimensions reflect the basic aspects of human nature, and can be considered as independent constructions.

Vertical dimension

Causion - Brave

The vertical dimension is best be described as an activity level ranging from active to thoughtful. People with DiSC behavioral styles at the top of the circle are typically fast and often described as powerful, dynamic and courageous.

Traditional interpretations of the model show that these individuals typically see themselves as stronger than the surrounding environment. Because of this view, they tend to try to change their surroundings.

Conversely, people with behavioral styles at the bottom of the circle will typically have a slower pace, and are often described as thoughtful, methodical and cautious.

The traditional view is that these individuals are included as less powerful than the surrounding environment and thus are more likely to adapt to the existing environment.

Horisontal dimension

Interrogative - Acceptable

These characteristics are typically explained by the fact that these individuals perceive their surrounding environment as hostile. In other words, they will instinctively hesitate to rely on outsiders and ideas until these foreign elements have been thoroughly tested.

Conversely, people with behavioral styles in the right side of the circle are more receptive and are often described as person-focused, empathetic, and comfortable. It is usually said that these individuals see a clash between the surrounding environment and their own interests.

They will basically tend to evaluate people and ideas in the surrounding environment positively, and will therefore naturally tend to show confidence.

D-style

The D-style (Dominans) is active and interrogative. It characterizes people who are direct, powerful and with a straightforward attitudes.

i-style

The i-style (indfluence) is active and accepting. It characterizes people who are outgoing, enthusiastic and lively.

S-style

The S-style (Stability) is thoughtful and accepting. It characterizes people who are gentle, accommodating and patient in relation to the mistakes of others.

C-style

The C-style (Competency Seeker) is thoughtful and interrogative. It characterizes people who are analytical, reserved and accurate.

It's not rigid!

Although the DiSC dimensions form four different behavioral styles, it is more appropriate to consider the DiSC circle as a continuum. All four behavioral styles overlap with their adjacent behavioral styles in the same way that colors blend in a color wheel. Red and yellow are different colors and when mixed they form a new color, namely orange.

The D and I styles are also different, but the area between them on the circle also reflects different behavioral traits. People with the Di style are e.g. typically more likely to describe themselves as daring and convincing than people with the D-style. A person with the iD style will typically describe themselves as more charismatic and dynamic than a person with the i style. In both cases, the two styles (Di and iD) have something in common with the D style and the i style, but they also have characteristics that distinguish them from these pure behavior styles.

There is consistent work on saying and writing “someone with the C-style” instead of just writing “a C-type”. With this small linguistic difference, we try to avoid the temptation to stall people. Although a C-style person will typically exhibit C-style traits, he or she will also possess elements from the other three behavioral styles. For example, the person will could easily listen patiently to a colleague describing his hurt feelings, although this is more of a trait one associates with the S-style.

Adapted behavior

The continuous shape of the DiSC circle helps us relate to the idea of custom behavior. One can consider one’s personal style of behavior as the home base or comfort zone. A C-style person may prefer to work alone with analytical projects that require accuracy. However, there will be times when he or she must participate in social functions in professional contexts. In these situations, he or she must extend towards the i-style of the circle.

A person with the C-style, with their plotting point close to the center of the circle, will surely find it uncomfortable but manageable to be part of such a social function. A person with the C-style, whose point lies completely at the edge of the circle, is likely to find it very stressful to participate in such a social function. Here, the person has to operate far outside their comfort zone and it requires much more energy. As a rule, people with points close to the center of the circle will be more easily adapted to adapt to other DiSC styles when necessary.

People with points on the edge of the circle may be forced to stretch if they want to adapt to a different style of behavior. However, these individuals have more pronounced DiSC styles, and at the same time, give them some more pronounced special strengths.

The purpose of the DiSC profile

The DiSC® tools, that are based on more than 40 years of research, provides us with a language to explain and deal with the diversity we experience among the people around us. When you gain knowledge about your own or other DiSC behavior profiles, you can with more ease  handle and customize your behavior in relation to your colleagues. For example, it is essential if you are dealing with a change project where communication is key.

When you adjust your behavior to what you want to achieve, its easier for you to get the results you want and to achieve your goals. DiSC profile analysis is an exceptionally good tool for that.

It is important to note that DiSC profile analysis is not about putting yourself or your colleagues in some good or bad categories. And the system also does not provide any kind of grades for certain behaviors. There is a constant focus on how we can become even better together by utalizing ourselves and others the best way possible.

DiSC consideres the natural behavior of your or your colleagues. That would be, the behavior style that is usually the most comfortable and that requires the least amount of energy and concentration. It illustrates the way you or your colleagues usually respond.
