DISC Assessment


Definition: a DISC Assessment is a personality trait assessment tool based on the DISC personality theory of psychologist William Marston. Marston's theory centers around 4 different personality traits:
1. Dominance (or drive): relating to control, power and assertiveness.
2. Inducement (or influence): relating to social situations and communication.
3. Submission (or steadyness): relating to patience, persistence, and thoughtfulness.
4. Compliance (or caution or conscientiousness): relating to structure and organization.
Comparable to Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument.
