DISC Theory

Dr. William Moulton Marston was the creator of DISC Theory at Harvard University in the 1920’s, while doing research for his book, The Emotions of Normal People.  He was looking to identify predictable traits and behaviors of every day people in different environments. DISC styles are a combination of four behavioral personality types.


The styles are not black and white. We have some level of each of these styles in our personality. It’s just a matter of what combinations are high or low. A high level of dominance predicts your behavior in the same way a low level of dominance does, so intensity does matter.  When analyzing a person’s personality style, we look at which combinations are highest; also taking into account how high or low each style is on the graphs.

Find out your DISC style!

By taking the DISC test and looking at one’s primary, secondary, tertiary ,even absent style traits, we are able to determine one’s DISC personality type. How one will act, react, communicate, handle conflict, and even organize a project/work space in a given environment. Styles commonly differ in the home, social, and work environment. This information can be very powerful when applied in hiring the right candidate for a position, increasing communication between teams/individuals, training managers/leaders, and many more DISC applications.  By understanding one’s needs, fears, tendencies in communication and behavior, you can proactively adapt or approach them in a way in which they will react positively. People are all people predictably different. This class can help your business, your team and your personal relationships.  Great communication can help with increased sales, growth, and team building!
