Understanding DISC is a general reference source describing the workings of the DISC system, and how DISC profiles are interpreted.
A version of Understanding DISC is freely available online. It contains a wide range of information, covering everything from the basic underpinnings of the theory through to its practical applications. Understanding DISC is broken down into five main sections:
The Theoretical Basis of the DISC System explains such fundamental concepts as 'behaviour' or 'traits', and presents some historical background to the DISC system.
The Style Card looks at a basic means of presenting and understanding DISC information, reinforcing the theoretical ideas behind DISC and exploring them further.
The Four Factors moves on to describe the DISC model itself, and look at such features as factors, graphs, profiles and sub-traits.
DISC Profile Shapes lists all the most basic DISC profile shapes, giving an interpretation and explanation in each case.
Application Areas looks at the ways DISC can be put to practical use. This section provides specific information about its use in the traditional areas of recruitment and assessment, as well as looking at other less common applications.
Understanding DISC is now also available as a download application for your iPhone or iPod Touch. Now you can explore DISC theory, or review classic profile shapes at any time.
