DISC Profile: C For Compliance


DISC Profile Series

Internal Profile

The Internal Profile reflects the candidate’s true motivations and desires. This is the type of behaviour that often appears outside a working environment, or when an individual is placed under pressure.

External Profile

The External Profile describes the candidate’s perception of the type of behaviour they should ideally project. This shape usually represents the type of behaviour that an individual will try to adopt at work.

Summary Profile

In reality, candidates will usually act in ways consistent with elements from both profiles. The Summary Profile is a combination of the other two graph shapes, describing a person’s likely normal behaviour.

Shift Pattern

The Shift Pattern graph shows the changes between the candidate’s Internal and External Profiles, and so highlights the adaptations the candidate is making to their character.
