What is your predominant behavioral style?
This is a quick self-assessment to reveal your most prominent behavioral style according to DISC. It is not meant to be as accurate as a full assessment, but just a fun way to introduce you to the DISC concepts.

Understanding Self and Others with DISC
Behavioral science research indicates that all human behavior is either needs-motivated or values-driven. Since values arise out of and interact with needs, it is important to understand the different types of needs-motivated behaviors that we ourselves exhibit and that are exhibited by other individuals on a daily basis. Philosophers, psychologists, and managerial sciences researchers have identified four basic psychological needs that exist in all people.
However, most individuals will usually be energized by one or two of these needs at any given time. In any given situation usually one or two of these behaviors will be more appropriate. If an individual’s goal is to create an environment where positive interaction can occur, it is necessary to know which behavior will be most effective. The more an individual knows about himself and consciously chooses to utilize the behaviors that are most appropriate, the more likely the individual’s actions will result in his/her goals being met.
- All individuals have some of all four tendencies but will usually be controlled by two of these tendencies. 4% of the population will exhibit behavior energized by primarily one factor; 50% will be energized by two of these factors; and 46% will exhibit behavior combining three of these factors.
- People energized by three factors tend to be more flexible behaviorally. However, in every “live-or-die,” “fight or flight” situation, one instinctive or core trait tendency will control the actions of the individuals because that need is essential for that person’s long-term survival.
