IN ADDTION DISC IS...
A Behavioral Language— DISC focuses on behavior not emotions. DISC is not a clinical tool, so no doctor visits are necessary.
An Understandable Language— DISC uses four main dimensions and their intensities, so it is a simple language to understand and remember.
A Universal Language— DISC may be the only language that is truly universal.
A Neutral Language— DISC does not have right or wrong, good or bad styles. All styles have strengths and limitations, and all styles are uniquely positive.
A Practical Language— DISC can be applied to life. It has practical and useful applications in social, business, and family relationships, and is a wonderful tool for self-development.
DISC theory, researched by Dr. William Moulton Marston at Harvard University, is a method of identifying predictable actions and personality traits within human behavior. Marston narrowed these predictable personality traits into four DISC personality types.
