Now that you have completed your DiSC Profile you are probably wondering how to interpret the results of your DiSC profile report.
The DiSC profile report is straightforward, easy to understand and doesn't require a licensed psychologist or interpreter to review the results with you. Our Everything DiSC assessments are written in the purest form to make it accessible to everyone who would like to understand their personality style and leverage their strengths to improve productivity.
DiSC Profile Explained: Introduction to DiSC
The first part of your DiSC report introduces you to the DiSC model.
The DiSC profile is a two-dimensional model which then creates four main quadrants: Dominance (D), influence (i), Support (S), and Conscientiousness (C).
As you've seen by completing your assessment, the DiSC assessment is based on eighty (80) questions where you identified behaviors that were most like you or least like you. The DiSC assessment used adaptive testing to determine the specific questions for you to answer, thereby ensuring the assessment is personalized to your behaviors and providing you with accurate results that reflect your DiSC personality type.
DiSC Profile Explained: Cornerstone Principles for Everything DiSC®
In your DiSC profile report, you will find the cornerstone principles. The cornerstone principles are vital principles for applying the DiSC model at work. The premise is that all personality styles are equally valuable, our experiences such as our life experiences (environment, culture, neighborhood, etc.) influence how you behave and reflected in your results. The report should be used as a guiding star to help improve you, while some of the feedback will not surprise you, other parts may come as a surprise, therefore, we ask you to be kind to yourself as you implement the DiSC model in the workplace since changing behavior takes work. Completing a DiSC profile is the first step of your journey.
DiSC Profile Explained: DiSC Personality Overview
The DiSC profile overview section identifies your dot placement. We mentioned above that the DiSC model is based on four quadrants. Those four quadrants break down further into the twelve styles of DiSC and provides twelve (12) regions identifying your DiSC personality dot placement.
Besides your DiSC personality dot placement, where your dot is located on the DiSC model chart matters. A dot that is located closer to the edge of the circle indicates that the individual has a strong inclination of that DiSC personality style. A dot placed towards the middle of the circle shows a moderate inclination for the personality style. Finally, a dot that is located close to the center of the circle has a slight inclination of that DiSC personality style.

This portion of the Everything DiSC personality report is my favorite. Some participants like to refer to this report section as the truth serum. In this section, the report takes all the behaviors identified from when you completed the assessment, creates a story so that you can better understand your behavior and highlights the impact of your behavior on others. We all know that storytelling is a much better way to get your message across, likewise, with the results from your DiSC profile report, the story is provided in such an impactful way that it is hard to believe that it could be so precise.
DiSC Profile Explained: DiSC Personality Priorities and Shading
In your report, you will find that the DiSC model chart is shaded. The chart contains words around the circumference. Your shading identifies your priorities. The words which are located nearest to your shading identifies what you like to focus your energy on. Most people have at least three priorities. Some people can stretch to include four or five priorities.
