The DiSC Model And DiSC Profile

In the book “Emotions of Normal People”, written by William Moulton Marston, published in 1928, we were first introduced to the DiSC model, still used in the DiSC profile today. Since then, more than a 50 million people worldwide have completed the profile. The assessment itself was developed four decades ago and has been popular ever since. We have now seen three generations of the DiSC Profile, results of our continuing dedication to quality, validity and accuracy.

It is very easy to interpret the DiSC Profile. This version is perfect for those people who do not have internet access.
