The sub-trait of Accuracy is found in DISC profiles with high Compliance and low Influence. The greater the difference between these two factors, the more Accurate the individual in question. The opposite sub-trait of Accuracy, where Influence is higher than Compliance, is Self-confidence.
This sub-trait is also sometimes referred to as 'Caution'. The type of person to whom it refers hates to make mistakes - they check and recheck their work, and are prone to correct errors in other people, whether or not they have been asked to do so. This need for certainty means that they will never take a risk unless absolutely necessary. They are also cautious in communication, rarely revealing more about themselves than a bare minimum.
Accuracy is a classic introverted sub-trait: those who possess it are highly analytical and relatively uncommunicative. Because of their analytical style, people of this kind will often hold back from action, rather than risk negative results. They prefer the predictable and systematic. This can lead to their being seen by more active types as rather dour and uninspired. In fact, Accurate styles are quite as capable of original thought and inventiveness as any other style, but they are typically reluctant to act on their ideas, or communicate them to others unless encouraged to do so.
Accuracy takes a unique form in profiles showing high Compliance in conjunction with high Dominance (the High-DC profile, shown top left). In this case, the analytical and rather inexpressive element of the sub-trait is combined with a more demanding and assertive element. The demand for precision and unwillingness to take unnecessary risks associated with Accuracy are maintained, but the High-DC also has the assertiveness to demand these traits from those around them.
