Understanding DISC Personality Test – DISC Profile Most and Least Choices
DISC Profile asks you to think about how you “behave” in certain situations. It gives you twenty-four sets of four words or phrases. In each set, you choose which of the four words or phrases is “most” like you and which one is “least” like you.
Your “most” and “least” responses are both important to DISC Test results.
- The “least” responses reflect your negative preferences, i.e. we are very clear about what we do NOT like. These negative preferences change less often than positive preferences, so they reveal your “Basic or Natural style.”
- On the other hand, our positive preferences, the “most like you” responses, are often more conditioned by our current environment, so they reveal our “Adapted” style.
These two styles, Basic and Adapted, make up the two graphs of the DISC Personality Test. One graph represents the Basic style or a fairly stable “sweet spot,” and another graph shows the Adapted style or how one changes behaviors in a given context. See the next article for more explanation.
