DiSC Classic Profile Explained

The DiSC Classic Profile is widely used by many organizations and has been around for years.  DiSC Classic Profiles are offered in both paper and electronic formats.

The DiSC Classic Paper profile was the first DiSC profile created  to help you identify your natural tendencies and behaviors and learn how to leverage your personal strengths in the workplace.  This profile allows you to complete an assessment without the requirement of having access to a computer.

The DiSC Classic Profile comes in a little blue booklet with a graph of the four primary DiSC styles on the front; D, i, S and C.  Then when you open the booklet, the first two pages provide an overview of the DiSC assessment and instructions on how to complete the DiSC assessment.

In this section, a chart is available for you to tear out and use the chart to tally their results while completing the assessments.

After reviewing the instructions, you can begin completing the assessment.  


DiSC Classic Profile Explained:  Questions

The DiSC Classic Paper profile is based on twenty-eight (28) questions.  These questions use adjectives to describe your behavior.  Each section will have four adjectives for you to select from where you identify behaviors that are most like you or least like you.  Keep in mind that this is an assessment, not a test, therefore there is no right or wrong answer.  The assessment provides you with insight into your behaviors and how you respond to a given situations in the workplace.


DiSC Classic Profile Explained:  Scoring

After responding to all twenty-eight (28) questions, participants tally their scores.  Scoring the DiSC Classic Profile uses shapes and letters.  So you will have to count how many stars, or triangles etc. did you get on your assessment.  Each column tallied will equal to twenty-eight (28).  

Next, you subtract Graph 1, most like you column, from Graph II, the least like you column.  This provides the difference which is entered into Graph III.


DiSC Classic Profile Explained:  Results

Now that you have tallied your results, the numbers that you have on Graph I, Graph II, and Graph III are plotted on the chart for Graph I, Graph II, and Graph III.  Plot each section of the D, i, S, and C on all the graphs, this then provides you with your segment numbers and your classical patterns results.

Your DiSC Classic pattern description is your final score and identifies where you are placed on the DiSC model.  For example, if your segment result is 2167, you turn to page ten (10) in the report to find 2167 and the name of that classical pattern.  

Finally, you should read the description of your DiSC classic pattern.  Review it to see how closely the description aligns with your patterns and behaviors.  Consider behaviors that are like you and assess how closely the feedback in the report aligns closely or differs from you.  Then discuss your results with a trusted partner to see how they experience you in the workplace, and if the description provided aligns with how you behave.
