MyEverythingDiSC.com is the social platform for DiSC® products. You can create an account where you can organize everything and keep track of your DiSC® reports. You can also personalize your profile with a photo of yourself, as well as a little bit of information about yourself.
In addition to managing your profile and keeping track of your reports, you can learn quite a lot about DiSC® and its origins. There is an entire timeline dating back to its start in 1928. The DiSC® model was first created by a man named William Moulton Marston who was a phycologist. He introduced the model in a book called “Emotions of Normal People.” He focused primarily on psychological phenomena, rather than actual concepts of personality or temperament. He was mostly interested in theories of emotion, and the physical manifestations of various emotional states. It was from his research on this subject that he theorized that the behavioral expression of one’s emotions could be categorized into four main types. These stemmed from a person’s perception of themselves in relation to their environment. The modern version of the DiSC® model does maintain some of the core principles introduced by Marston, however there have been some additions made that are backed by more recent advances in psychological measurement and theory.
Along with the history of DiSC®, you can go through the years and discover when each different profile was implemented and released. There is also a section where you can explore the DiSC® map in its entirety. It lays the map out for you, broken down into all 12 of its sections. It allows you to click on each section, and see a brief overview of that specific personality type and their tendencies.
Another section on the website allows you to look at some DiSC® theory. One of these theories is the two dimensions of human nature. It breaks the circle down into four parts – vertical halves and horizontal halves – with each section having its own set of tendencies. Once you have taken a DiSC® assessment and see where your dot is on the map, you can see which sections you fall under. There is also a section that goes into detail about the four quadrants of DiSC® - which are the four primary styles. t also goes over the idea of “stretch” which suggests that while everyone has a dominant style, they are able to “stretch” into other styles when necessary because everyone has a little bit of each style in them.
MyEverythingDiSC.com is the place to not only obtain and organize your reports, but it gives you valuable and interesting information about DiSC®, its history, and the theories behind it. It may be beneficial to read through some of these things before completing your assessment, as you will have a better understanding of the concepts and where they came from.
