The underlying principles of the various DiSC styles were first identified by Richard Moulton and published in 1928. In the 1970’s the first use of computer based questionnaires were introduced. To date 50 million people worldwide have had the profile done.

Motivators & Stressors of the Different Styles
The DiSC profiler has 4 broad categories. In order to fully understand these four DiSC styles, attention is given to the “motivators” that are often associated each style, as well as “stressors” that might impact their effectiveness in the workplace.
The ‘D’ style of the DiSC model represents Dominance
The D style tends to prioritise getting immediate results, taking action and challenging themselves and others. People who are high in Dominance are classified by their high self-confidence, assertiveness, goal orientation, competitiveness, and sense of urgency.
The ‘i’ style of the DiSC model represents Influence
The i style tends to prioritise expressing enthusiasm, taking action and encouraging collaboration. People high in the Influence quadrant are often articulate, enthusiastic, optimistic, and show high energy. They often verbalise ideas and concerns to others and appreciate an opportunity to “talk out their ideas” as a way to come to a decision or conclusion.
The ‘S’ style of the DiSC model represents Steadiness
The S style tends to prioritise giving support, maintaining stability and enjoying collaboration. People high in the Steadiness quadrant are generally calm and patient. They are cooperative and friendly, although because they are more reserved, their friendliness is more low-key than the effervescence of the “i” dimension.
The ‘C’ style of the DiSC assessment represents Conscientiousness
The C style tends to prioritise accuracy, maintaining stability and challenging assumptions.
People high in the Conscientiousness quadrant have a concern for accuracy and high standards. An analytical mind, an eye for detail, and they typically enjoy solving problems. They usually keep their feelings to themselves, which can make it more difficult to get to know them.
