You’ve been asked to complete a DiSC profile, now what?

You’ve been asked to complete a DiSC profile, now what?

Everything DiSC mobile questionnaireOf course, it depends. We only sell the leading DiSC® profile, the one with the small i in the name. If that’s what you’ve been asked to take, read on.

If you’ve been asked to take another DISC product, you might want to look into how well-researched and validated it has been.

DiSC assessments are used worldwide in thousands of organizations of all sizes, major governmental agencies, and Fortune 500 companies.

Important points about DiSC

DiSC is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork, leadership skills, and communication. It might be used in a work setting, a church, in counseling or coaching, or any number of situations where communication is important.

There are no right, wrong or preferred answers or styles. Yes, you might be given a label as a high S or a Di, but there are no value judgments in that label. Unlike the MBTI, there are no styles displayed by only a small minority of people. Unlike other tests based on the DISC model, Everything DiSC includes a measurement of your priorities in addition to your style.

You might receive a card like this to post and remind others about your style and how to work best with you.

No secrets will be revealed. The DiSC assessment was created to reflect observable behaviors. You will not be asked about your past history. There are no moral choices to make, nor any mental health evaluation. DiSC is used to help people understand themselves and others in the range of normal human behavior.

The profile is well-research and validated. Many people have taken a personality test in the past that was either a rip-off of a legitimate assessment or never evaluated by professionals. This is not one of those.

You don’t need to focus on one area of your life while answering the questionnaire. You can think about how you behave at work, at home, or socially. It won’t significantly change your results.

Are you taking DiSC Classic or an Everything DiSC product?

Everything DiSC

There are multiple assessments in this family: Workplace, Management, Sales, Productive Conflict, Agile EQ, and Work of Leaders.

Give yourself about 20 minutes to take care of this task. You will be asked to do the following:

Go online to the URL you were given by the trainer or coach or whoever is responsible for the profiles.

  • Follow the instructions. In other words, relax and take a quiz about your normal behaviors. There are no trick questions. You might be asked a few questions that seem similar. The testing adapts to your answers and is designed to get the most precise and reliable results from you. So if your responses are showing that you have two equally strong styles, you’ll get a few more questions to determine which style you prefer most.
  • Scoring is completed electronically immediately after the assessment is completed. You might immediately see your results or your facilitator might print your report and deliver it to you.
  • Your report will tell you about yourself and about interacting with people with other styles. You might get specific information about sales, conflict, management, or leadership.

Take a look at a sample report for Everything DiSC Workplace or Everything DiSC Workplace: Spanish version.

DiSC Classic

  • You’ll be asked 28 questions.
  • Results will be available online for DiSC Classic 2.0. Your facilitator will help you score a DiSC Classic paper form.

    What do you do when a staff member takes a DiSC assessment and scores a 0? All 4 quadrants are exactly equal. I have found no guidance for this. I have another staff member who tested Ci – can’t figure that one out either. Help?

      Everything DiSC profiles don’t provide a number score and the minimum score for DiSC Classic is a 1, so I’m not sure what you mean. I recommend asking the staff member to take Everything DiSC Workplace and then to look at their Supplement for Facilitators report for more insight into their style.

      We have a blog post about the Ci style at
      What happened to my style: iC or DS?

    I have answered neutral for every question however I was given a profile today to say I was a c with great variances when compared with colleagues. How can I score without answering the questions?

      It sounds like you did answer the questions. I’m a bit confused by your question. Were you trying to game the assessment? Were you taking the Everything DiSC assessment? It uses adaptive testing so will give you additional questions if your style isn’t immediately clear. Are you saying that the C style isn’t representative of you? Where did you dot fall on the DiSC circle? Have you looked at the Supplemental for Facilitators Report?
