*WARNING IF YOU'VE USED A "DiSC" PROFILE COPY by "DISC" PROVIDERS
*PLEASE DON'T READ THIS IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH DiSC
"Everything DiSC™" boasts high validity & reliability ratings, and a database of 60+
million individuals, with one million more per annum. Famous in the world of education & training, DiSC™ is imitated by many self-proclaimed "me2" experts...who unwittingly provide bad
information and perpetuate prevailing DiSC myths. It is NOT predictive.
Since the early 70's merging of Peter Drucker's traditional "management-by-objectives" organization development concept
with the human potential movement, I've been a vintage frontline DiSC™ trainer experienced with the original "Personal Profile System." I’ve observed that most "me2" DISC™ providers
actually and unintentionally mislead their audiences by offering subjective interpretations based on two or three graphs, citing that graphs one and two represent an adaptive and a natural
personality. A major cosmetics company teaches this "double personality" myth to its sales reps. There is no such thing! DiSC™ is NOT a clinical personality test.
Further data collection has proven that this pre-supposition leap of logic interpretation entirely wrong. Wiley
Publishing reports that in the early 90s, the British Psychological Society conducted its own study of the 24-item DiSC questionnaire and concluded that graphs one and two were measuring nothing more
than two different perspectives of self-perception. Current DISC providers who continue to support this assertion, or who cite 'percentage of population' style numbers based on their limited
databases, are working with outdated and unsupported claims stated as facts. For the real thing, call me.
I’ve learned that emotional intelligence means a heightened sensitivity of what others do not express, noticing subtle
nuances of individual personal styles, developing a conscious, visceral awareness of emotional mindsets...and adaptation of ones' own emotional mindset. "Everything DiSC" has produced total culture
shifts for Honda, Carhartt, Copper Leaf Gardens, and many other organizations by sharpening overall sales results.
