What does the DiSC instrument measure?

The DiSC instrument from Inscape 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.

What does the Emotional Intelligence instrument measure?

The Emotional Intelligence instrument measures Personal Competence in terms of Self-Management and Self-Awareness and Social Competence in terms Social Awareness and Relationship Management. The four parts of the emotional intelligence model are based upon a connection between what you see and what you do with yourself and others in that regard. You will receive scores in these areas which will make up your Overall Emotional Intelligence Score. You can then compare your scores to the normal sample to determine concerns you must address, areas to work on, areas to develop into a strength and strengths to build on and capitalize on.

Where do personality types come from for the DiSC profile?

The DiSC instrument from Inscape 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).

How can a personality assessment help me understand myself and others better?

When you receive your results, you will learn that there are many different ways to interact with others, to make decisions and how you approach situations. Learning more about yourself and your preferences will give you increased understanding about your friends and co-workers which can help improve your interpersonal relationships.

Are your answers considered right or wrong?

There are no right or wrong answers for DiSC or Emotional Intelligence assessments. The answers you provide help to assess your own personal tendencies and preferences in a given situation. By understanding your preferences better, you gain greater understanding into how you will respond most comfortably to a certain task or situation.

What will I learn from the DiSC and Emotional Intelligence reports?

I would like to use the 'Cannot View Results Version' of the DiSC for my team, what is the process?

After you place your order, a receipt will be emailed to you containing individual assessment links for each report that you ordered. To issue the links, simply copy, paste and email a link to each individual in your group and ask them to click on the link and follow the instructions. After they complete the assessment, they will not be able to view their report. Instead, we will generate and email the report back to you at the email address you used to place the order. DiSC reports are manually generated and emailed within 1-3 hours during Eastern U.S. (EDT/EST) business hours. Please contact us if you have additional questions about how we can assist you with your group!

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 go 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 report) 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 when you are ready to receive it. We will also ask you for a team name or group name that you would like us to display for you on the cover of your reports. You can also provide your team name to us during the checkout process in the ‘Additional Information’ box. Please let us know if you have any additional questions about our facilitator reports or group culture reports.
