Frequently Asked Questions
Are all the competitors disc profiles the same?
Simply put, no. What is true is that they are all based on the same four dimensions or behavioural traits, namely Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance or Conscientiousness. However, most publishers of DiSC Model products have different questionnaires, even though some are very similar. They all originate from the same 24 item, four words per item, forced choice questionnaire that was developed by Geier and Hendrickson in the 1960’s and revised in 1971.
Most versions have since had word changes, and some have been adapted into phrases. The challenge is to find a validated, reliable profile. To date, only one supplier has published results of extensive validation and reliability studies since 1971. That is Wiley and we distribute their version of DiSC."
what is the difference between mbti and disc?
"Personality Type” is a term used to describe the results of a personality test such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Myers Briggs Type Indicator is a respected personality test, which measures Jungian Type, following the theories of Carl Gustav Jung.
The DiSC Model does not measure personality type, but it does measure aspects of personality. To be more explicit, the words individuals respond to are attributes or qualities of the person. What the DiSC profiles measures therefore is more stable than surface behavioural responses to external stimuli. They measure aspects of personality, but not personality type."
If you are interested in MBTI, you can also contact us because some of our trainers are also MBTI certified.
Should disc be used as a selection tool
DiSC is not actually designed to be used in selection. DiSC was designed as self-assessment tools to give people an understanding of their behaviour so they could learn to increase their effectiveness. And yet many DiSC Model products are sold primarily, if not exclusively, to be used for selection. There are significant challenges in using a DiSC profile as a selection tool.
DiSC profiling does not measure a person’s behavioural adaptability. It does suggest the notion of ""stretch"", meaning the amount of effort needed to adapt to a new situation or a person. Research has shown that the most effective people are those who can adapt to the environment and use the most appropriate behaviour in each situation. This ties in with research on emotional intelligence (EQ) that people with higher levels of EQ are more productive and effective in different situations, regardless of their personality or behavioural style. There are assessment tools specifically developed for recruitment purposes, we can help you on the wa in selecting the better ones, just contact us.
