About 10 years ago, a good friend introduced me to the DISC Assessment. Then, a little over a year ago, another friend attended a seminar and told me about how it could influence our work habits and work ethics. Rather than getting into the history of this tool, I’ve chosen to list the strengths of each personality type above. However, if you wish to look further into it, you will find some excellent information on the DISC Behavioral Model on the web.
There are strengths and weaknesses in all these personalities, yet they can all work together if they understand one another. In fact, it’s been said that any efficient team should have someone in each of these personality types.
Some employers are using the DISC personality test to choose employees. In my opinion, they are limiting their business, because each of these personality types have something to bring to the table. They will all enhance a business. What’s important is for them all to work together as a team to get things accomplished. Any business with only one personality type will be limited in what it can accomplish and how they can work with their clientele.
Just for fun, which type do you think you are? Again, there is no right or wrong personality type. Each one is unique and brings with it strengths and weaknesses.
