CriteriaOne DISCWhat is DISC?

DISC behavior styles can be described as “how” people approach the 4 P’s of everyday living: solving Problems, influencing and interacting with People, handling the Pace, and following rules and Procedures. Everyone has an observable and recognizable behavioral style. People with similar behavioral styles tend to exhibit similar work related characteristics.  The acronym D-I-S-C merely represents how four distinct and proven preferences toward working with people and tasks might be observed by others. DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by the letters:

  • Direct: how people approach Problems
  • Influence: how people influence other People
  • Steadiness: how people approach Pace
  • Compliance: how people approach Procedures

DISC has also been called the universal language of behavior and is what the CriteriaOne® DISC Behavior System is based on. CriteriaOne DISC® describes these four fundamental behavior styles and identifies how each style is seen by others in a work environment. Dr. William Moulton Marston is the “father of DISC.” His model has been tested, proven accurate and effective with millions of people for nearly 90 years. Marston’s work is based on the study of the 4 Temperaments or 4 Humours, tracing back to the work of Hippocrates and Plato in 400BC.

One of the biggest benefits of using DISC is its high ROI, convenience, and affordability. CriteriaOne DISC tests are completed online and require units to process reports. One unit is required to print one report. That means once a candidate or employee completes the questionnaire, the employer can process the results and create a report in one of the four formats.
