DISC Model of Human Behavior

Do you wish you could make sense of your people puzzle?  You can!

Ever wish people came with a “user’s manual” so that you would know how to understand them?  They do!

The DISC Model of Human Behavior offers a language through which we can understand other people’s tendencies.  It gives us some observable signs which allow us to identify the personality of another person so that we can more easily connect with them.

 DISC Model of Human Behavior

D:  People who are Outgoing and Task oriented are given the letter D because there are some words that begin with the letter D which aptly describe them:  Dominant, Determined, Direct, Decisive, Demanding, Doer. They are focused on getting things done and checking them off their list.  They are motivated by making progress…getting results!  When you communicate with them, they want you to get to the bottom-line quickly.  Their sign is an exclamation point because they are emphatic in the way they communicate with you.

S: Those who are Reserved and People oriented are indicated by the letter S because some of the words that fit them best are:  Supportive, Sweet, Stable, Shy, Steady and they like Status quo.  They are gentle, kind and thoughtful.  They love to help others and are motivated by peace and harmony.  They tend to be soft-spoken and prefer you to communicate with them in warm, friendly tones.

C: People who are Reserved and Task oriented are given the letter C.  Words that best describe them are:  Cautious, Careful, Calculating, Contemplative, Conscientious and Calculating.  Their approach to life is cautious because they want to be correct in the decisions they make and the things they do.  They want to have time to do their research before deciding.  They are motivated by having a plan and a procedure.  They communicate in facts and prefer that you communicate with them logically and unemotionally.

It is important to know that everyone is a unique blend of all four of the personality style traits. That is what makes us all different.
