    Default DISC assessment test and correlations with Socionics

    I had an opportunity to attend a management training last week and we all took a shortened version of the DISC.

    Anybody familiar with this?

    What do we think about how it's correlated with socionics?

    I won't tell my DISC profile right now . . .

    Default DISC test

    I like this test model. Someone posted it at MBTI Central.

    I hate DiSC. It's like some discriminatory tool or something, to determine if you're able to lead or not.

    *laughs* I've taken a different one (and this one). I started S/I, but after re-taking the test in the following months, I'm now high I. This test... I think it had me S when I took it.

    I won't take it now because I know far too much about the types to take it objectively.

    meh, didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know. Heh, the dominance descriptions sounds like a contrast of stereotypical Ni-leading (low dominance) and stereotypical Se-leading (high dominance).

    Ezra likes it because he's probably high on the D-scale.

    I could lead people. Over a cliff...

    Seriously, high Is can lead, but that doesn't mean they should, IMO, not without a C on hand to catch the details slipping through the cracks and hold onto papers. (Been there.)

    I don't think I replied to this test very accurately. Most questions are more reflecting to cognitive development stage rather than cognitive types.

    DiSC = retarded.

    amazingly, i can see both, temperaments and communication styles fitting here, with temperaments the other way around for the last two too though.
    I'm actually somewhat repulsed by the S description. If it is describing IJ (which it's not), then I am not EJ.

    How about this... which one is closer to enneagram 1, S or C?

    This was actually the first typology system I was ever exposed to. My parents learned about it in Sunday school.

    Yeah, I could see how you would have a hard time really relating to one of those types more so than the others. I could see that with a lot of people.

    3. i repeat, look at people's data.
    oic... you sounded quite certain of what you were saying, so I assumed you had some idea what you were talking about.

    There's actually a long list of words that describe each of them.

    D: dominant, driving, demanding, determined, decisive doer
    I: inspirational, influencing, inducing, impressive, interactive, interesting, interested
    S: supportive, submissive, stable, steady, sentimental, shy, status-quo, specialist
    C: cautious, competent, calculating, concerned, careful, contemplative

    Having pulled out the book again, it seems it's outgoing vs. reserved instead of extroverted vs. introverted.

    What do they mean by their version of E/I ?

    I'm socionics IT and myersian ET. I think I'm C-first or something, despite the test results. I'm interested in leading, but I don't really like to intimidate people, and I'm task-oriented rather than people-oriented.

    I don't think I relate much to D or S.

    I think it's more related to Etypes than socionic types or myersian types :

    D : 3 8
    I : 2 7
    S : 4 9
    C : 1 5

    Like Joy said, it's outgoing vs. reserved. I was introduced to the 4-temperament system first as well, and I've been reading about it over a span of about 5 or 6 years.

    On another note, the DiSC system irritates me, but I admit that the version I took was pretty good. It measures you on your outward appearance and certain interaction traits, preferred surroundings, etc. Still, once again, it's only as good as the person's view of him- or herself.

    *takes test*

    D 24
    I 40
    S 20
    C 16

    In other words, I'm not "high anything" on this one. I's the only one in mid-range. This is why I dislike the 4-temperament system: can't figure out what the heck I am (some say San/Mel isn't a valid combination).

    The idea in the system is that everyone has a dominant style, but there's always a secondary style. Possible combinations are D/I, D/C, I/D, I/S, S/C, S/I, C/S, and C/D. D and S are opposites that are not found together (unless one's environment forced him/her to adapt and take on traits of their opposite), as are I and C.

    Therefore, if someone isn't sure what type they are because a few of their scores are close, they can look at their lowest score to help them determine it. Implied, for example, would be either an S/I or an S/C (according to her test scores).
