DISC Profile - Discover Your Strengths And Improve Your Life

"Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.". Lao-Tzu

"Know thyself means this, that you get acquainted with what you know, and what you can do.". Menander
Knowing and mastering yourself is the true wisdom with power. Do you want other people telling you what you can do or what you can not?

This sounds like opposing the community term of self mirror.  While "you are what others see you" is strongly believed in the society, The DISC system teaches you the different way.

I personally love this one :

Knowing yourself is not so much about introspection and interaction. To know yourself is to realize that you are more than the little self that has been given to you by your history — the pattern that others made — that your true self is, in truth, much larger and includes other people, other cultures, other species even. That life is less about being and more about interbeing. We come to know ourselves, then, through coming to know each other. And the deeper that knowledge, the richer and more creative t he world we build togethe. Danny Martin
DISC is a system to determine your strong or weak points to find the perfect proffesion that matches your unique character. This system will disclose your true potential in life.


Dr. William Moulton Marston (1893–1947)

DISC is a quadrant behavioral model based on the work of Dr. William Moulton Marston (1893–1947) to examine the behavior of individuals in their environment or within a specific situation (otherwise known as environment). It therefore focuses on the styles and preferences of such behavior.

Before he invented this method, Marston’s Earliest Professional Years discovered a correspondence between blood pressure and lying, he built a device to measure changes in a person’s blood pressure while the subject was being questioned. Marston formally published his early polygraph findings in 1917 on the lie detection invention he first constructed in 1915.

Marston graduated from doctoral studies at Harvard in the newly developing field of psychology. He was also a consulting psychologist, researcher, and author or co-author of five books. His works were showcased in Emotions of Normal People in 1928 among others.

Four Aspects Of Behaviour

In DISC assesment, it classifies four aspects of behavior by testing a person’s preferences in word associations.

DISC is an acronym for:
  • Dominance – relating to control, power and assertiveness 
  • Influence – relating to social situations and communication. 
  • Steadiness (submission in Marston’s time) – relating to patience, persistence, and thoughtfulness. 
  • Compliance (or caution, compliance in Marston’s time) – relating to structure and organization.

These four dimensions can be grouped in a grid with:

People who score high in the intensity of the “D” styles factor are very active in dealing with problems and challenges, while low “D” scores are people who want to do more research before committing to a decision.

High “D” people are described as demanding, forceful, egocentric, strong willed, driving, determined, ambitious, aggressive, and pioneering. Low D scores describe those who are conservative, low keyed, cooperative, calculating, undemanding, cautious, mild, agreeable, modest and peaceful.

People with high “I” scores influence others through talking and activity and tend to be emotional. They are described as convincing, magnetic, political, enthusiastic, persuasive, warm, demonstrative, trusting, and optimistic.

Those with low “I” scores influence more by data and facts, and not with feelings. They are described as reflective, factual, calculating, skeptical, logical, suspicious, matter of fact, pessimistic, and critical.

People with high “S” styles scores want a steady pace, security, and do not like sudden change. High “S” individuals are calm, relaxed, patient, possessive, predictable, deliberate, stable, consistent, and tend to be unemotional and poker faced. Low “S” intensity scores are those who like change and variety.

People with low “S” scores are described as restless, demonstrative, impatient, eager, or even impulsive.

People with high “C” styles adhere to rules, regulations, and structure. They like to do quality work and do it right the first time. High “C” people are careful, cautious, exacting, neat, systematic, diplomatic, accurate, and tactful.

Those with low “C” scores challenge the rules and want independence and are described as self-willed, stubborn, opinionated, unsystematic, arbitrary, and unconcerned with details.

This is a sample of my DISC test result :
