What is the DISC Theory?
The DISC theory is a user-friendly yet remarkably accurate framework for deciphering human behaviors. It elevates self-awareness and interpersonal comprehension by providing a shared language and a structured framework.
Drawing from William Moulton Marston’s profound insights, published in the 1928 book “Emotions of Normal People,” the theory postulates that people’s actions stem from their unique perceptions and reactions to various situations.
Marston distilled these behaviors into four distinct styles often referred to as DISC personality types:
D: Dominance (with detailed description)
While most individuals can exhibit all four behavior patterns on occasion, one or more of these styles tend to be consistently prevalent in a person’s workplace interactions. This is because each individual develops a behavioral style that places particular emphasis on certain traits while downplaying others.
