Fit Personalities In Where they Work Best with DISC

Since 1972, more than 50 million people have taken the DISC assessment. Some have taken it after they were hired, but most take the test as a part of a company’s hiring process. By understanding the personality of a potential employee, employers can ascertain whether or not the applicant is a good fit for the position in which they’ve applied.

How do a series of seemingly random questions work toward dictating whether or not someone could be a good fit for a job? Well, it doesn’t. The test provides a level of understanding of human behavior that can help your company fill a position and help a manager improve the productivity of his/her staff by knowing how to best handle certain situations.

DISC has now become one of the most prevalent and accepted personality assessment tools businesses use. The four letters represent four different personality types. They are:

D - Dominant - Forceful, Decisive, Risk Taking, Results Oriented.
I - Influential - Talkative, Impulsive, Optimistic, Trusting, Persuasive.
S - Steady - Friendly, Kind, Predictable, Supportive, Understanding.
C- Conscientious - Accurate, Analytical, Cautious, Private.

The question then becomes, how is knowing that someone is more understanding then demanding help them be a better resource for an organization? Simple. The knowledge gained in the DISC assessment can be taken by managers and used to enhance productivity, efficiency, and communication. Everything that a person accomplishes is dependant on two factors: the efficiency in which a person is effective at accomplishing goals; and, how efficient and effective they are at inspiring and motivating others.
