DISC PROFILE

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Fort Myers & The Islands

D--I--S--C 

The first time I heard about this profile method was in early 2006.

My husband called me and told me that he had just taken the profile for his job and that as they were going over what each letter meant, he knew 100% without a doubt exactly what I was. He said the instructor described me to a "T". He could not believe how spot on the profile was of me.

I  was somewhat skeptical about it. I have done the Myers Brigg and umpteen other assessments. I saw merit to them but was not completely sold out.

A few months later I took it was was VERY surprised that is was only 24 questions; it seemed too simplistic. However, I was amazed how the pages of the DISC desrcibed me so accurately. It has helped me tremendously with my professional and personal life.

I am wondering how many others out there have taken it.

How did you score? Do you find the assessment accurate, if so to what degree? Do you use it in your job??

Thanks in advance for taking the time to post a response.

I took the DISC test about 4 months ago and I have to admit it was incredible how accurate it is. I scored a High D/High I.

I'm a HIGH D.  I use this profile in interviews for my team, it's helped tremendously in selecting team members.

Hi Kimberly,

Our entire real estate company utilizes DISC personalities and it's significance in representing all personality profiles.

It's a great tool to have in your tool box.  Congrats!!!

I took this last year and I'm a high "D" and "I".  I think this is a great way to see what our strengths and areas of improvement are.

I have taken this test many times.  It changes for me depending on my job, or if I it is in my personal life.  For the most part I am a High D S.

I do like the test.

I am seeing that many people are missing the best value of the profile.  Yes, you need to take the test to validate that the profile has some merit. It is fun and interesting to evaluate yourself and find ways to improve.  However, the best value of using personality profiles is understanding all of the personality types to the extent that you can assess customers and team members.   I've used both DISC and Myers-Briggs as well as a few others in my 20 years in management.  I personally like Myers Briggs because I find it easier to "type"  people without having them do an assessment.  DISC may be better if you are building a team where everyone takes the test but I've never used it like that.  

Here is a fun exercise to learn personality types.  Find a partner who watches the same TV shows and understands the personality profile.  Then independently figure out what personality types the characters are.  Get together and compare notes.  Use a couple different show types so that you hit all the personality types!

My wife and I not only use DISC with our clients and teammates, but I teach DISC for real application for Realtors.  I know our company uses DISC to asses prospective agents and staff, but without the real application you may only learn about yourself and not others.

Our real estate office uses the DISC profiles as well.  We all know each others personality type and it helps us work effectively with each other.  Once you are able to identify prospects personality type, it also makes communicating with them easier. I am a High D/ High I.

Just took for the first time, my employer is doing a workshop this afternoon.

High DC.

I think it is an impressively good representation of myself in a work environment, I'm also relatively sure my coworkers are going to be higher in the IC departments after a quick read of the descriptions.
