How do I get started with Discus?

Getting started with Discus is easy. You'll just need to take a few minutes to sign up for an account, and then you'll be ready to start creating profiles right away.

Can I send questionnaires to my candidates online?

Discus provides an entire suite of features to make this process easy and automatic. At the simplest level, you can simply enter a person's e-mail address, and Discus will send them an invitation and then display and manage the questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is complete, a report will immediately be compiled and added to your accounts.

Discus also provides lots of options for your to customise this process to meet your exact requirements. For example, you can arrange to be automatically notified and sent a copy of the report as soon as it is available.

Can a person completing a questionnaire read their own report?

This is a decision you can make as you set up an invitation. There's no requirement to share the report, but you have the option of doing so if you wish.

Discus can also provide an intermediate solution through the 'Feedback' report, which is an alternative version of the report specifically designed for this purpose, providing a readable and accessible summary of the results.

Do I have access to all my profile reports?

Every DISC profile produced on your account is held in your own secure Discus database. You can access, review and manage those reports at any time. Discus even provides extra features to assess the results in combination, such as comparing candidates against the needs of a role, or assessing how individuals would work together in a team.

How can I recover a lost or forgotten Discus password?

It's easy to reset your Discus access details. You can start the process from the Discus sign-in page, or by following the link below. Discus will handle resetting your access through your registered e-mail address.

Is training available?

We offer a comprehensive online video training course introducing the DISC system and its workings. The course is free if you sign up for an account with fifty credits or more.

Discus itself offers an interactive guide to get your started, and extensive help resources throughout the system.

I received a test invitation, but I'm not able to use it.

There can be various reasons for this. The invitation code might already have been used, or it might simply have expired, or been cancelled by the user who originally set up the invitation.

Your best course of action in a situation like this is to get in touch with your invitation provider and ask them to set up another invitation for you.

I completed an invited questionnaire, but I didn't receive a copy of my report.

When a Discus user sends out an invitation, they can choose whether to give you access to your report or not, so it may simply be that this option isn't active.

If you think you should have received a report, your best course of action is to contact the person who sent you your invitation; they will have the option of sending you a copy.

Can I try Discus for free?

Sorry, we aren't able to offer free trial profiles, but if you want to try the service, remember that you can set up a Discus account with just a single credit.

If you want to see what Discus can produce, take a look at our extensive library of sample reports.

Inside a Discus Report

Discus Report Cover

View Sample Reports

Explore the new-style reports for yourself with these samples.



Discus provides some of the best DISC reporting features available anywhere, but Discus reports are now even more richly detailed with the release of our new and expanded reporting features.

Discus reports are available in two different styles so you can use them in just the way you need. You can choose the amount of detail you require in any report, from the comprehensive Classic report to the truly extensive Enhanced version. For DISC experts, we can even provide a minimal report showing just the core profile information. Discus will also give you the fine control to customise the report, allowing you to decide exactly which sections you need.

For easy access you can read our reports directly on your browser, but to help communicate them to colleagues they're also available in industry-standard PDF format, ideal for e-mailing, printing or archiving. Discus reports are also available in numerous different languages, and you can switch between translations at any time.

Discus Report Cover

Elegant and Accessible

Discus reports are designed to be accessible and useful to everyone, not just to DISC experts, but there's also plenty of material to keep more advanced users fully informed.

  • On the cover of the PDF report, you'll see the candidate's DISC profiles right away, as well as a colour-coded flash that sums up their personality style.
  • Customisation features within Discus allow you to add your own corporate logo to each Discus report.
  • All reports start out with biographical and contact details about the candidate.
  • For ease of use, the PDF report includes a useful introductory section explaining what's inside the report, as well as giving a brief introduction to DISC profiling.
  • Feedback Reports, designed to be read by candidates themselves, are available free for Enhanced profile reports, or as an optional service.
Discus Report: DISC Profile Series

DISC Profiles in Detail

As the Discus report is based on the DISC profiling system, it's natural that the candidate's DISC profiles should be the first topic addressed. The Discus report does more than just show you profile shapes, it goes into detail explaining what those shapes mean and how they are relevant to your decision making process.

  • A DISC Profile Series covers the three main graph types: Internal, External and Summary.
  • Discus' unique Shift Pattern graph finishes the series, highlighting the changes and providing an overview of what those changes indicate.
  • The report includes commentary on each DISC factor as it appears on each of the four profiles.
Discus Report: DISC Style Cards

Discus Style Cards

A Style Card is a useful and convenient graphical way to represent a person's behaviour, using part of DISC's underlying theory. Discus has always provided a Style Card analysis as part of its report, but the new-style Discus report has expanded this area considerably, especially at the Enhanced report level.

  • The main Style Card describes a candidate's general style, as well as illustrating any current adaptations.
  • Discus now provides a range of Style Cards covering specific situations: Work, Leadership, Communication and Learning.
  • Each Style Card presents a useful graphical overview, as well as explanatory text and a personality checklist.
Discus Report: DISC Personality Traits

Key Personality Traits Explored

In the reports' Trait Summary section, you'll find an extensive list of work-related traits, mapped to show how they come into play in a person's working style, and each described in detail. In this area of the report you'll also find an examination of the ways an individual is adapting to their work.

  • The Trait Grid is an at-a-glance overview of the ways important traits are distributed in a personal style.
  • Traits are broken down not only by their current significance, but also their likelihood to emerge in different situations.
  • Each trait and its significance is explained in detail.
  • Profile Tension shows how a candidate is currently adapting their approach, and explores any likely consequences.
Discus Report: Textual Report

The Discus Textual Report

The centrepiece of the entire Discus report is its textual analysis, written in natural language by an intelligent system capable of analysing millions of different factor combinations to produce a meaningful description of a person's behaviour. The report is broken down into multiple topics: ten general discussion points in a Classic report, with another eleven more specific areas covered by the Enhanced report.

  • The Textual Report gives you a complete and comprehensive discussion of all aspects of the candidate's behavioural style.
  • Textual content starts with an overview and general description, and then moves on to address more specific topics in greater detail.
  • Where a candidate shows notable adaptation in their working style, the report goes into detail about variations for any topic.
  • Guidelines sections look at important roles like management or sales, and provide suggestions for development.
  • The Exploratory Questions section gives you a list of behavioural interview questions tailored to the individual candidate.
Discus Report: Relationship Assessment

Relating to Others

The Discus profiler includes a Relationship Assessment module that will give you a detailed breakdown and interpretation for any pair of DISC profile. The main DISC report deals with a single individual, but it can still provide some useful insights through the new Relationship Keynotes section.

  • Relationship Keynotes address how a candidate will interact based on each the four primary DISC factors.
  • As well as a general discussion, specific relationship topics are covered in detail: Communicating, Managing and Team Roles.
Discus Report: Job Matching

Matching People to Jobs

Any Discus report can optionally include a Job Match, an assessment of a person's suitability - in terms of their personality - for any role. The Job Match provides a simple percentage match for ease of reference, but also goes into the details of the match, highlighting particular areas of strength, as well as likely training areas.

  • Match a candidate against any of the roles in our extensive Discus library, or use the built-in Job Profiler to create your own.
  • Use the Job Match to review likely personality strengths specific to any role.
  • Each Job Match includes a textual job description covering all the key personality requirements.
  • A Job Match will also provide a direct comparison for related jobs to illustrate the candidate's fit.
Discus Report: DISC Reference

Thorough Reference Information

Every Discus report comes with a full suite of reference information. As well as a helpful guide to the most common DISC profile shapes, the report also includes a comprehensive glossary including directly relevant comments about the report's subject.

  • An Appendix of DISC Profile Shapes describes all the main personality patterns described by DISC, with a brief explanation of each.
  • The Glossary of Terms explains all specialised terms used within the report as whole.
  • Glossary content is based on the report itself, but a full Glossary runs to about eighty entries.
  • Each relevant Glossary entry includes contextual information relating that entry to the candidate.
